Up and Coming With The Foundation | May 2022


We are wrapping up on the 2021-2022 school year soon!  However, keep an eye out for two big Gower Foundation initiatives over the summer:

READ-A-THON: registration is now open to register your children for the 2022 READ-A-THON!  Mark your calendar for multiple summer pop-ups to keep our children engaged and reading!  The first pop-up will be at Barbara's Bookstore in Burr Ridge on Saturday, June 11th (10am-11am) for a special reading, donuts, and a raffle!  Click here to go to the READ-A-THON site for more information.

GOWER GALA: Be on the lookout for your Save-The-Date to the Gower Gala on September 17th!  Invites were sent home with your youngest child before the close of the year, including one with the Golden Ticket for a free Gala ticket!

The Gower Gala tickets are now on sale!  Click here to buy or visit the Gala page here.

The Gower Gala continues to seek volunteers and local businesses that are interested in sponsoring the Gala.  Please click here to check out the Gala page and see more about the tiers and benefits of sponsorship.

We look forward to seeing you at the READ-A-THON pop-ups this summer!
