To the Editor:

The Eighth Annual Cloquet Educational Foundation Blue Jean Ball is coming up!

The event is an opportunity for a night out filled with extraordinary auction items, tasty and satisfying food and professional entertainment, all while wearing your most comfortable jeans!

The BJB is also a fundraiser for the Cloquet Educational Foundation (CEF), which supports programs for Cloquet students from birth through high school graduation.

The CEF is a separate entity from Cloquet Schools, and it is the only foundation dedicated solely to Cloquet students. Last year, the CEF provided $40,000 in support of important learning experiences for thousands of Cloquet students. All donations to the CEF are invested in interest-earning accounts. Only a portion of the interest earned is used for grants. This means that all donations continue to grow and benefit Cloquet students - now and for future generations!

Some of the programs supported by the Cloquet Educational Foundation include after school clubs, technology (smartboards), science fairs, all-night graduation parties, CHS musicals, spelling bees, field trips for special needs students, artist residencies and American Indian Education.

There are a number of ways you can contribute to the Blue Jean Ball. The best, of course, is by attending. This year's Ball will be at the Otter Creek Event Center in the Black Bear Casino on Saturday, Feb. 7. Tickets are $30 and include dinner, dessert and entertainment.

You can make a donation to the live or silent auctions, a cash donation or you can sponsor a table at the Ball. Any donation, large or small, benefits Cloquet students and is greatly appreciated. For more information about tickets or to make a donation, contact me at 218-879-3806.
