On behalf of the Kaneland Knights Sports Boosters Board of Directors, I would like to thank everyone who was able to come out and enjoy our 2015 “Knight to Remember” spring fundraiser. The night included a Red Woody concert, silent auction, a number of raffles and selection of this year’s Draw Down winners. This year, over 50 individuals, families, sponsors, donors, and corporations were generous enough to donate their time, energy and effort to help the Sports Boosters raise over $11,000 to support Kaneland athletic programs
The purpose of the Kaneland Knights Sports Boosters is to provide our athletes and coaches with the “extras” that the school budget cannot fund. Each year, the Sports Boosters provide tens of thousands of dollars of raised funds to enhance our sports programs at Kaneland High School and Harter Middle School.
None of these funding needs would be met without the generous support of our “Knight to Remember” sponsors. We would like to thank the following for their contributions and help: SignFx, Mill Creek Golf Club, Mark and Emma Ebbert, the Calabrese family, Tracy Healy, Anne Shaw, Thomas Huels, Peter Goff, Kaneland High School coaching staffs, It’s Raining Cats & Dogs Pet Resort, Bob’s Septic, The Walter & Connie Payton Foundation, Matt Suhey, John Attard/Medinah Golf Course, Wiltse Family Farm, Cadence Fitness & Health Center, Laurie Hannula Photography, Heather Espe, Roxanne Sowell, the Thielk family, The Vaughan Center, Nannette’s Giving Boutique, Renew Salon, Julie Jones, the McCaffrey family, Emily Kay Salon, Ziza Nail Salon, JT Nails, Jimmy Johns/Sugar Grove, Couture Tan, Vera Bradley Corporation, Open Range Grill, Cherie Provenzano, the Guerra family, Fireside Grille, Texas Roadhouse, Mardi Gras Lanes, Mychelle Prichard, Kristy Sreenan, HD Backhoe, Robin Redman, Mike and Barb Pollastrini, Jay and Norma Strang, John and Judy VanBogaert, Doug and Renee Kiefer, Todd and Shanne Kuipers, Dianne Olson and Christine Noel.
For all of us, including the Kaneland Knights Sports Boosters, Kaneland High School athletes/coaches and Harter Middle School athletes/coaches, we would like to say thank you. We could not have done this without your generous support.
The following is a list of winners from the draw down: $25 winners, Lisa Thielk, Vicki Preston, Louis and Mike Krahl, M. Heidecke, Corey Douglas, Yvonne Keifer, Bryan Williams and Denise Habbe; $50 winners, Perry Clark, Brian Johnson, Jeremy Angarola and Scott Hollenbeck; $100 winners, Heather LaCost, Dawn Kuefler, and Robert and Dee Davidson; $3,000 final award (split four ways), Scott Preston, Karen Gagne, Tom Gould and Kevin Geary
