Event History

The first LREF fundraising event, the Wildcat Gala, was held in 2005 at Highland Springs Country Club. Since then, we have raised nearly $622,000 for Logan-Rogersville schools. In 2014, the event was renamed to the Denim & Diamonds gala and relocated to the White River Conference Center at Bass Pro.


Money donated to LREF is placed in an endowment fund, and the income generated is used each year to enhance the curriculum of our students, purchase supplies and equipment for the Logan-Rogersville R-VIII School District, establish scholarships for both students and teachers, and supplement student fund-raising activities for trips and competitions.


Since the Foundation originated, we have received grant requests in excess of $968,395, and as of the February 2017 event, have awarded grants totaling over $230,264. As you can see, demand far exceeds what we are currently able to fund. You can help change that.


By supporting the Logan-Rogersville Educational Foundation, you have a great opportunity to give back and help us ensure that our schools have the resources they need to provide more meaningful educational experiences to our students. As a community, when we work together, the kids win.


Our event in February 2017 was a huge success:

  • Nearly $37,000 was raised during this annual fund-raising event
  • 7 grants were awarded to four different buildings within our district worth nearly $19,700, plus we applied for and received CFO's Classroom Innovation Grant on behalf of 4 additional classrooms, worth an additional $2,500
  • 204 people attended our 12th anniversary event at White River Conference Center

Sponsorship Opportunities

A large portion of the funding for this event comes from generous community sponsors, ranging from our presenting sponsor, Citizens Bank of Rogersville, to table sponsorships. The silent and live auctions are the other piece of the fundraising pool, and we welcome donations of physical items, gift cards, trips or time-shares, and experiences (e.g. hunting trips). Please contact Lelia Voss at (417) 299-3076 or Linden Mueller at (417) 886-8606 or if you would like more information about sponsoring a table or donating auction items.
