More than 325 people from across Evanston and Skokie came out to support Foundation 65’s My 65 Benefit on Jan. 29 at Smylie Brothers Brewing Company. Foundation 65 raised more than $110,000, exceeding fundraising goals and allowing more support for all District 65 schools.

It was a fun night of food, music, and dancing – all in support of public education in Evanston and Foundation 65. The highlight of the evening was a video about the importance of the community’s support of education, produced by Susan Rohrback and Bill Glader of Glader Filmworks.  

The evening’s success is due to the hard work and support of sponsors, in-kind donors and volunteers.
