2019 Gala

2019 Lincoln Lutheran Gala

The Lutheran Education Foundation (LEF) hosted the 24th annual Lincoln Lutheran Gala and Dinner Auction on March 22, 2019 at the Embassy Suites in Lincoln.  The event raised over $123,000 through a live and silent auction to support Christian education for current and future students. 

“The annual Lincoln Lutheran gala is always a great time to come together to celebrate and support Christian education, while having fun with good friends. This year’s event was even bigger and better than ever, and we were blessed to be a part of it” said Gala attendees, Matt and Anne Blankenbiller.

Scott Ernstmeyer presented the 2019 Shield of Faith Award to Rupert Dunklau Foundation and the 2019 Founders Award to Mark and Sandy Hannemann.  The two awards recognize the many ways they have enhanced the ministry of Lincoln Lutheran and Lutheran Education to the community of Lincoln. 

“I have attended the Gala for five years.  I am amazed and humbled each year as over 400 guests attend and make a difference in the lives of young men and women today, tomorrow and forever,” said Lloyd Wagnitz, Director of Ministry Advancement.  “The event is an evening of fun and fellowship for the Warrior family in generous support for Christ-centered education and scholarships.”

The 25th annual Gala is scheduled for March 13, 2020.
