Corey's Goal Newsletter
Our first fundraising event, Corey’s Super Goal Party 2018, was a HUGE success. Over 400 people gathered on Sunday Feb 4, 2018 at Bobak’s Signature Events to watch the Super Bowl and raise money for Corey’s Goal. To date, we have raised over $100,000 through sponsorship, cash donations as well as through the silent auction and raffle at the event. Over 40 volunteers worked tirelessly to help the event be so successful. Thank you to all our generous donors and volunteers who helped make our first event fun for all!
2018 Scholarship Winner
In April, Corey’s Goal awarded its first $2500 grant to the Naperville North Huskies Hockey club for the Corey Walgren Memorial Scholarship. This year’s winner of the award and trophy went to Michael Hall who is attending University of Illinois. Michael is also playing hockey for University of Illinois’ D2 hockey team. Congratulations Michael!
Civil Rights of Students
In June, Corey’s Goal had a booth at the National Association of School Resource Officer’s convention in Reno, NV. Over 800 SROs were in attendance. Maureen and Doug spoke with school resource officers from all over the country to spread our message and hand out brochures. We conducted a survey of 80 SROs to see how disciplinary situations are handled across the country.
