What is Fall Follies???
As the new school year begins and invitations go out for the Kohler School Foundation’s annual event, Fall Follies, there are several questions we get every year. Here are responses to our most frequently asked questions:
What is Kohler School Foundation?
The Kohler School Foundation is a non-profit organization that grants money to initiatives that support the Kohler School District’s strategic priorities, provides scholarships to graduating seniors, and takes the district beyond the basics of what the typical public school budget allows. The Kohler School Foundation’s funding is designated solely to support the district.
What is Fall Follies?
In its thirteenth year, Fall Follies is an evening that brings together the district’s supporters: community, staff, and corporate contributors. It celebrates both school and community and is a great opportunity to meet new neighbors, connect with others, or enjoy a night out without the kids! The proceeds from the silent and live auction fundraiser go toward the Annual Fund, directly impacting the next school year, and a portion to the Visionary Endowment Fund, that helps in future years. It will be held October 26 at The American Club Resort Hotel. The ballroom is quickly filling. Please register at bidpal.net/ff2019 before it’s too late!
How can I give if I cannot attend Fall Follies?
The event has become a wonderful celebration known for fun and camaraderie, but if you’re unable to attend, there are other ways to give. You may:
Write a check for a tax-deductible donation to the Kohler School Foundation and deliver it the Foundation’s mail slot at school or send to: Kohler School Foundation, 333 Upper Road, Kohler, WI 53044.
Donate online through www.kohlerschoolfoundation.org.
Bid on auction items online through bidpal.net/ff2019 on Kohler School Foundation’s Giving Center. BIDDING WILL BE OPEN SOON! You may bid from miles away (spread the word) beginning soon through the evening of the event and you will be notified if you have won an item. There are a few special items, however, that will only be available at the event itself at our always exciting live auction.
Donate an auction item for the 2020 Fall Follies.
Any way you contribute, it makes a difference to the students and faculty at Kohler Schools.
What do I wear to Fall Follies?
Slip on your best boots and bowties, and be prepared for a wild ride. Fall Follies is intended to be FUN – not stressful! It is a casual event meant for comfortable conversation and, of course, dancing! That said, with a different twist each year, you’re sure to have fun when you “dress the part.” With this year’s theme, “Boots and Bowties” you can be Wyatt Earp or Calamity Jane, James Bond or Nancy Sinatra-the possibilities are endless… Follies is meant to be fun… so creativity is encouraged! Wyatt Bond anyone?
- Who is the Kohler School Foundation?
We all are. While the organization is comprised of a collection of local volunteers, without the dedication and support of you, the Foundation would simply not exist.
Fall Follies 2019 is sure to be a fantastic event. Wrangle up those sitters, join the Kohler School Foundation in celebrating, and get ready to have your yee-haw shaken, not stirred!
