What: The Immokalee Foundation’s 2016 Charity Classic Celebration is an extraordinary evening of fine dining, entertainment and auctions of once-in-a-lifetime experiences to benefit TIF students.
This year’s theme, “25 Years of We Are Immokalee” highlights the successes of TIF’s programs and students through the combined support throughout the community – benefactors, corporate sponsors, mentors, community partners, instructors and volunteers – and shares opportunities to support their future during Fund A Dream, a unique live bidding experience that enables donors to contribute to Immokalee’s children in a specific and tangible way.
Fund A Dream is organized into specific categories that provide students with opportunities to grow, learn and advance. Auction items include opportunities to fund college and vocational scholarships, reading support and intervention, college success and experiences. Donors also may provide support to build leadership and life skills as well as fund studying abroad, access to the arts and technology, and youth leadership.
Who: The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences, and life skills development leading to economic independence.
Board members Don O’Neill, Mac McDonald and Jay “Stoney” Stonesifer are coordinating TIF’s largest fundraiser of the year.
