LEF Gala Fork & Pencil Donations

Thank you to the many school PTA’s who have donated fabulous baskets and financial donations towards the silent auction for LISD’s Education Foundation Gala, “The Fork and Pencil”, which will be held at The Hilton Garden Inn / Lewisville Convention Center on September 12th.


Our silent auction generates an incredible amount of funding each year and we could not do this without the generosity of our PTA’s. The dollars raised help fund our annual teacher grants and scholarships for LISD graduates.


It’s not too late to donate to the silent auction. If your PTA would still like to  make a contribution or drop a basket off at the LEF offices (in the LISD Student Services Building) you can still do so. Be sure to attach this donation sheet with the name of your school on the form as well as other information that allows us to give full credit in our event program to your PTA.Feel free to call me with any questions and THANK YOU for supporing LEF and LISD!

PTA Membership Card Information

From Texas PTA:

This past spring, National PTA announced they would no longer provide membership cards to State PTAs for distribution; however, Texas PTA is committed to continuing this service to our Local PTAs.

While the timing of National PTA’s announcement did not allow us to provide an alternate card within the traditional timeline, we are finalizing plans to distribute cards prior to the start of the new school year.

We will provide the details and timeline of the card distribution on Monday, August 3. 

We understand that some PTAs may need member cards by a specific date and we will provide an opportunity for those requests on Monday, August 3.

LEF Fork & Pencil Gala Donations

Each year the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation hosts The Fork & Pencil gala, an evening of fabulous food and entertainment.  Proceeds from the event go toward supporting the teachers and students of Lewisville ISD through grants and scholarships. LISD local PTAs help out by donating auction items.  Please see the letter below from Julie Foughty, LEF board member, for the 2015 donations.

Dear Campus PTAs,

Thank you for your continued support of the LISD Education Foundation and our annual gala.  The 2015 event, The Fork and Pencil, will be held on September 12th at the Hilton Garden Inn and feature both a silent and live auction.

Campus PTA donations to the silent auction have been an incredible tradition that has helped make this event an absolute success in raising dollars to maintain our district endowment for scholarships, classroom grants, teacher grants and more!

If you have already donated to the 2015 silent auction we send you a BIG THANK YOU!  If you have not had a chance to donate, we wanted to send a reminder before you close your treasure records for the past school year.  There are two traditional ways PTAs have donated in the past:

1 – A basket or item donation is dropped off at the LEF Office (in the student services building where the council of PTA meetings are held).
**We will list your PTA as a donor on our silent auction donor list and in the auction**

2 – A check is dropped off or mailed to the LEF Offices attention: Fork and Pencil
**We will list your PTA as a donor on our silent auction donor list and also next to the item we purchase for the silent auction with your donation $$**

Please include this completed form with your donation (please write the name of the Campus PTA on this form).  The address for LEF is:

LISD Education Foundation
400 West Main Street
Lewisville, TX 75057

Thank you for considering a donation to LEF.  If I can be of further assistance do not hesitate to call or email me.
