Falcon Education Foundation Fundraising Event

  • Each year, the Falcon Education Foundation honors outstanding staff, students and volunteers across District 49, along with hosting one big fundraiser. Between $30,000 and $40,000 is raised at the event each year through an auction and other festivities to help fund the FEF teacher mini-grant and scholarship programs.
    COVID-19 restrictions didn't allow the event to take place in 2020 and 2021, so we are extra excited that the event is back in 2022! We look forward to hosting many D49 staff members and supporters from corporate sponsors this April.

    Date: Friday, April 22
    Boot Barn Hall
    13071 Bass Pro Drive, Colorado Springs 80921
    Doors open at 5:30 p.m.  |  Dinner at 6:30 p.m.  |  Live auction & concert to follow

    The theme for the event is "Denim & Diamonds," and we'll be featuring Just Dance Band during the concert.
