Friends and families of Plano's Faith Lutheran School recently raised more than $20,000 for school fine arts programming at the school's annual fundraising gala and auction event, which was conducted on Saturday, February 21 at Southfork Ranch in Parker.

The event featured dinner and live and silent auction of donated items including a Disney dream vacation, Dallas Cowboy tickets, a behind the scenes tour at WFAA-TV Channel 8 and much more. 

"The event was a great success, and the generous support of the community and our school families have made our plans for extensive school fine arts programming improvements a reality," said Faith Lutheran School Headmaster Rev. Stephen W. Kieser of Plano.

In addition to the gala and auction and other fundraising efforts, Kieser said a portion of the funds for the project came to the school through Thrivent Care Abounds in Communities®, a program that allows Thrivent Financial members come together to help their communities and individuals in need.  Members can use Care Abounds in Communities® dollars to add to the funds they raise at an activity.

Funds raised will immediately go toward school fine arts improvements such as improved instrument storage, band room and choir room enhancements, drama department improvements and much more.
