The theme for Prairie Fest 2024 was, “Prairie’s Got Talent” and the talent showed up in many forms including our guests who wore their Prairie Spirit Colors and demonstrated their bidding skills in our live and silent auctions. Plus our corporate sponsors, our auction donors and the Prairie Staff members who shared their musical talents for our entertainment.

Prairie Fest is the Prairie School Foundation’s largest annual fundraising event for the College Community School District.  Our mission is to enhance the education of our Prairie Kids.  We use the dollars raised for the purchase of programs, materials and equipment for the benefit of all Prairie students. 

We are pleased to announce that the net income for Prairie Fest 2024 exceeded $65,000 for our Prairie Kids Fund.  We are grateful to our primary sponsors, OPN Architects, Cedar Rapids Toyota, T & K Roofing and Sheet Metal, and Hills Bank plus our eleven corporate table sponsors.

Three years ago we started our Fund a Need initiative asking our guests at Prairie Fest to support a special need for our students.  This year we asked donors to provide “Bucks for Books.”  Our goal was to raise $10,000 to provide a take home book for every elementary student in grades K-4.  Prairie generosity broke through that goal raising $17,555 for “Bucks for Books.”  The foundation will add to that total to allow two forever books for those elementary students.  Finally, a special thank you to members of the Prairie Staff who rocked the house with their musical skills.  They included Doug Wheeler, Justin Sands and Grace Huber, Kristopher Bries, Jaclyn Lussenhop, Jennifer Mc Donnell and a team of Prairie Administrators.
