Celebrate the Learning Resource Center of Polk County, Inc.’s 40th Anniversary while helping children and families in the community at the annual For the Love…of Learning benefit on February 20, 2016.
Join this evening of celebration and cause with festivities that include entertainment from The Sofa Kings, a world-class silent auction, and food catered by Terrie Lobb with the purpose of raising scholarship funds for students enrolled in LRC programs.
The Polk County nonprofit hopes to top 2015’s fundraiser, which raised over $21,000 in scholarship funds and assisted more than 25 deserving students.
This year’s event will take place at the spectacular Krakowski Family Home in Lakeland’s Grasslands from 7-10 p.m. on Saturday, February 20, 2016. Jennifer Leigh of Channel 8 News will serve as the mistress of ceremonies.
Guests can purchase tickets to the benefit on LRCLoveofLearning.com for $65.00 (or $50.00 for LRC employees). Other ways to support the cause include becoming a sponsor, bestowing a scholarship, donating a silent auction item or contributing to the LRC Endowment Fund within the GiveWell Community Foundation.
Those interested in sponsorships and donations should contact LRC Executive Director Dr. Pam Craven by email, PamelaC@LRCPolk.com, or phone, 863-688-9477 or send a submission at LRCLoveofLearning.com.
