Fowl Play Dinner 2.0 hits a homerun!



Fowl Play Dinner 2015

The Zeeland Education Foundation hit a homerun with the Fowl Play Dinner 2.0! The team of Chix and Dux supporters came together to cheer on the Zeeland Education Foundation (ZEF) in raising almost $55,000 for Zeeland Public Schools. We thank our fans, event sponsors and local businesses that donated raffle items, for helping us with this homerun evening!

The dinner was held at the dugout of the Yacht Basin Marina and Conference Center with Beechwood Inn providing us with a family-style dinner. Our pitcher, Jim Kaat, was our All Star of the evening. He told us stories of growing up in Zeeland and shared with us the importance his family and this community have played in his life. This community did make a difference and it can continue to make a difference in the lives of Zeeland Public School students.

Wendy Rebhan, ZEF Executive Director, shared stories of how the ZEF impacts the district. We experienced evidence of the impact when we watched a video produced by students using equipment purchase in with a ZEF grant. Tom Den Herder, ZEF President, concluded the evening by announcing a $50,000 grant given to Zeeland Public Schools for support of a district-wide K-2 phonics program, Phonics First.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors and businesses for helping to make Fowl Play Dinner 2.0 “hit it out of the ball park”!
