CCSD Education Foundation EATS Event Returns Next Week

After a two-year hiatus due to Covid-related lock-downs, the Cook County School District 166 Education Foundation fundraiser returns this month. EATS (Enriching Academics Through Sustenance) will be held Thursday, March 9 from 5 to 7 pm at the Cook County Middle/High School.

The fundraising event for the Foundation features food samples from Cook County restaurants and food vendors. Guests may bid in the silent auction for a large variety of  items donated by local businesses and individuals. The North Shore Swing Band will provide the music for the event.

Only 125 tickets will be sold at a price of $30 each, and they are on sale until March 6. They may be purchased at the Subway restaurant in Grand Marais and at the school offices in the Middle/High School building during normal school hours. 

The nonprofit foundation was created to offer unique experiences for the district’s students through innovative instruction and co-curricular programs that are not funded by ISD 166 or other sources. 

The foundation operates with a 13-person board of directors and information and guidelines to receive funding can be found at the ISD 166 website,
