Laker fans invited to the Laker Academic Awards Gala Posted on April 27, 2017 On Sunday, May 7, the Lake Land College Athlete Leadership Council will host the second annual Laker Academic Awards Gala in the Field House. “We invite the Lake Land College community to join us for a night of honoring our student-athletes’ academic achievements,” Athletic Director and Head Baseball Coach Bill Jackson said. This year, the gala will be tied with a silent and live auction, with all proceeds going to Lake Land College Athletics. Live Auction items include Field Box Cardinals tickets, USGA US Open Wisconsin Final Round tickets, a three-day Nebraska turkey hunting trip, a trip to Par-A-Dice Casino and much more! In addition to recognizing each team, the many athletes who have excelled in the classroom will be recognized. The students have elected to honor Jeff White, biological science instructor, as Faculty of the Year. Coaches will honor the Laker athletes of the year – Tyler Schuring, Arthur, men’s basketball, as the Male Athlete of the Year and Kassidy Bonebrake, Crawfordsville, Ind., women’s basketball as Female Athlete of the Year. Tickets for the Gala are $25 per seat. Each seat includes hors d’oeuvres and a three course sit-down meal consisting of a salad, your choice of pork or chicken, and a dessert. Tables are made up of six seats and are also available for purchase at $125 each. Dress for the Gala will be semi-formal with refreshment hour starting at 5 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m. To purchase tickets or donate any items to the live or silent auction, please contact Ashli Robison at 217-234-5260 or email@example.com.
