30 Trips for 30 Years Event





Kewanee Schools Foundation is gearing up for its “All Aboard for Education! 30 Trips for 30 Years” event to be held at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, 2022 at Midland Golf Club in Kewanee.  Celebrating the Foundation’s 30th Anniversary, guests will have the opportunity to bid on 30 exciting trips to local and regional destinations, as well as longer trips to national destinations and abroad.  There is something for everyone.  Funds raised from the event will benefit the Foundation’s Dual Credit Scholarship program and Unrestricted Fund (supports the areas of greatest need). 

The Dual Credit Scholarship program gives Kewanee High School students the opportunity to receive high school and college credit simultaneously for certain coursework.  As such, many students are able to enter college as sophomores after graduating from KHS, and are spared a year of college expenses.

The evening will include a social hour and plated dinner with International desserts, and will feature live musical entertainment provided by Todd Kelly Three, sponsored by Johnson Chiropractic. This will be followed by a short program, prior to the Live auction. Bidding on the silent auction trips will continue for most of the evening.  The general public is invited and encouraged to attend.  Tickets are $40 each (before April 2) and $45 each after that date.  Registrations will be accepted until April 8, 2022.
