Fundraising events overview
Join us for any and all of our annual fundraisers. We have something going on for everyone who wants to support our students and schools.
Northern Stars Celebration
The Anoka-Hennepin Educational Foundation’s annual Northern Stars Celebration are typically a smashing success - raising thousands of dollars for our students and schools.
The celebration provides a fun way to come together to recognize the quality education that is our Anoka-Hennepin Schools. With silent and live auctions, delicious food and fabulous entertainment, the Northern Stars Celebration brought in more than $64,000 in 2018.
Bill Gallagher 5K Memorial Run/Walk
Held annually in April and in the memory of Bill Gallagher, a district principal who was a passionate champion for literacy, this fun, family-friendly event is all about raising money to support literacy projects in Anoka-Hennepin schools. The 5K typically engages 700+ runners and walkers (along with a few dozen dogs!) and raised $11,500 in 2018.
"Putt-ing Kids First" (best-ball scramble) golf tournament
The Anoka-Hennepin Educational Foundation's "Putt-ing Kids First" annual golf tournament is bigger and more successful than ever before.
The tournament, which is a long-standing tradition — the 2018 event will be the 59th annual — funds grants for early childhood education, talent development, and career and college readiness, among other core AHEF projects.
The 2017 event, held at Greenhaven Country Club in Anoka, generated over $20,000 for our students and schools.
