Event Plans for 2020-2021
Given COVID-19 restrictions, the Foundation had to rethink its major fundraising event for 2021. We have determined that it is best to hold a virtual 5K/1 Mile Run/Walk event for 2021. Not only is this a safer way for the Foundation to raise funds, but it also allows people to participate from literally anywhere and anytime over the 2 week event period. Note: AEF was very fortunate to receive support from the 2020 event sponsors despite having to cancel the event. As a result, AEF was able to provide the committed funding support to the Arlington Central School District.
The Foundation is excited about the prospects of a virtual event for 2021 and a means to provide continued financial support to Arlington Central School District in the areas of STEAM Labs (STEAM = Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics), the District Science Room and Scholarships to graduating seniors. The Foundation will hold its major fundraiser, the 5th Annual AEF 5K/1 Mile Run/Walk virtually between May 1st and May 16th. Please join us for an important cause. Without individual donors, event participants and continued business sponsors, the Foundation could not do any of this! To register, click here.
Additionally, local restaurant owners continue to support Arlington. The 9th Annual Arlington Restaurant Day turned into an Arlington Restaurant Week from November 9-12, 2020. What a huge success! Over $3,000 was raised. Please join us in thanking the following restaurants: Athena Gyro, Beekman Pizza Express & Deli, Beekman Square Diner, Carlo's Trattorisa, Daily Planet, Dutchess BBQ, Madison's Pizza Cafe, Pizza Express on 55 and Taconic Pizza. 15% of your purchases were given back to support the Arlington Education Foundation's programs.
