An Evening to Empower: Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

The Brandon Foundation is gearing up for our 2nd dinner and auction at YOLO Event Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Friday, May 20th.The night will be an "Evening to Empower" our current and future students. The goal of the event is to raise $60,000 ($40,000 for our College Scholarship Fund and $20,000 for our program funding).

Because of the generosity of our supporters, The Brandon Foundation's students have shown tremendous improvements, both academically and socially. We are so proud of our scholars; almost half of our students made Honor Roll this past academic quarter. Our students have also been learning the importance of giving back to the community. One of our favorite community service projects this year was making Valentines with, and for, the patients at the Lutheran’s Children’sHospital. We met some amazing children who were so happy to have a break from their hospital beds. As we left, we passed out Valentines to people waiting in the lobby. The smiles and happiness were priceless! 

Would you consider helping our efforts? You can help make our event successful by donating an item, gift certificate, a service, or a monetary gift. Your tax-deductible contribution will make it possible for the children of The Brandon Foundation to continue to grow, pursue opportunities, and develop as future community leaders. We anticipate having over 200 attendees, and all business donors will be featured in our program. Any donation in support of The Brandon Foundation will be well-received; no gift is too small.

Donations may be mailed to:
The Brandon Foundation
P.O. Box 15966 Fort Wayne, IN  46885

If you have an item that needs to be picked up, please contact Rebecca Bormann at (260) 413-8483 or rebeccab262@gmail.com to make arrangements.

We want to extend an invitation for you, your family, and your friends to attend our "Evening to Empower." As guests, you will enjoy live music by The Todd Harrold Band and a live painting by Teresa Yarbrough during cocktail hour, socializing, formal dining, and a silent and live auction. We still have individual tickets for $50 and table sponsors (8 tickets) for $500 available; we would love to see you there!
