CELEBRATING 16 WONDERFUL YEARS OF GALA
Christ Lutheran School will be holding our 16th annual gala. The Griffin Gala is a benefit dinner with both live and silent auctions that is a significant fundraiser for our school.
We look forward to an evening of fun and fellowship as we raise funds for the benefit of our students. Partner with us as we shape and equip our community’s future Christian leaders.
RaiseRight (Scrip) Fundraising Program
Christ Lutheran School has used the RaiseRight (Scrip) Fundraising Program for 10 years to help support our school PTO events and help fund some technology purchased for our school. “RaiseRight” is purchasing gift cards from national and local retailers – the same gift cards you buy at the store. However, the gift cards purchased through RaiseRight offer rebates ranging from 2-16% of the face value which go directly to our school.
*THERE IS NO SELLING* Over 750 retailers participate in the RaiseRight program including Land’s End, The Gap, iTunes, Amazon, Chipotle, Subway, Starbucks and many others.
The RaiseRight website is what makes the program EASY – it offers something for everyone.
- Physical gift cards
- eGift cards
- Reloadable gift cards
- Mobile website access (RaiseRight app)

Vandemark Memorial Turkey Trot
What is the Turkey Trot?
It is the CLS annual jog-a-thon. The Turkey Trot is a fun and healthy way for our students to raise money for their school. Every CLS student will walk or jog for 30 minutes as part of the jog-a-thon.
What does the fund-raising support?
The funds raised in the Vandemark Memorial Turkey Trot will be allocated to enhance the school budget, with our targeted fundraising goal of $15,000 dollars. In addition, we are tithing our monies raised up to our fundraising goal and sending them to a chosen partner ministry. This year’s partner ministry for the Turkey Trot is Joy Meadows, a non-profit organization that provides critical support and housing for families in foster care. The goal of Joy Meadows is to disrupt the negative cycle of familial separation in foster care, and to provide Christian care and counseling for children along the way. All funds raised above our targeted fundraising goal of $15,000 will be saved for our next phase of the Master’s Plan Capital Campaign. This campaign is designed to include the construction of additional facilities for the ministry at Christ Lutheran, including a gymnasium and additional support spaces. More information about the Master’s Plan Campaign and be made available upon request. Our jog-a-thon is scheduled to occur on November 19, 2021.
