Dear editor,

On behalf of the Cloquet Educational Foundation's board of directors, I would like to thank everyone who helped make the 18th annual Blue Jean Ball a wonderful success. Because of the overwhelming generosity of our community, we were able to raise over $60,000 for innovative educational opportunities for Cloquet's students.

We are deeply grateful for our event sponsors: The Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, The Exchange Bakery and Euphoric Entertainment. We would also like to extend our appreciation to our table sponsors, prize sponsors, live and silent auction donors, guests and amazing volunteers.

We have always known our community to be caring and generous when it comes to supporting our youth, and this goes to show how much good can be done when we all work together.

Gratefully,

Jeannie Kermeen

Cloquet Educational Foundation
