SEF Announces Lineage as $20,000 Presenting Gala Sponsor

The Sunnyvale Education Foundation has announced that Lineage — one of Sunnyvale’s newest businesses — will serve as the $20,000 presenting sponsor for this spring’s annual SEF Gala and Auction.

"We are so grateful that Lineage will be partnering with SEF as our title sponsor for this spring's gala and auction," SEF President Steve Bruszer said. "Their commitment to the students and teachers of SISD is a strong indication of the great neighbor they will be in Sunnyvale."

Lineage will join Trinity Capital Bank as a top-level gala sponsor this spring. The bank will return to the gala as a $12,500 “Hall of Fame” sponsor. Other sponsor levels are available in the attached sponsor level form.


The theme of this year’s gala is “SEF ROCKS”, meaning that attendees should plan on bringing their best “Rock Attitude” and even wear their concert attire. Concert t-shirts and jeans are welcome!

“Our 2017 Gala was a sold-out event and a record-breaking fundraiser for SEF,” SEF Vice President of Events Amanda McNeill said. “We are working hard to make sure our 2018 Gala will be another one for the record books. With the “SEF Rocks” theme, we are counting on our SISD family and friends to come ready to have a good time in their favorite concert attire and help us celebrate all that was accomplished in 2017 for SISD.”

The Lineage SEF Rocks Gala will once again be held at Gilley’s Event Center in Dallas but this time with an upgrade to the larger South Side Ballroom this year, due to last year’s event sellout. Graceland Ninjaz will be back to bring the fun to the dance floor as the featured live entertainment. As always, the live and silent auctions will not disappoint! The event will be held at 6:00 p.m. on April 14.

“We are excited to be moving to the 26,000 square foot South Side Ballroom at Gilley’s, which also includes an outdoor patio space for our guests to enjoy,” McNeill continued. “We will be offering many new auction items this year and several new perks for our top-tier sponsors, including a VIP reception to be held an hour before the Gala. I hope everyone is getting excited about our “SEF Rocks” Gala because this will be an event to remember!


Come to the Lineage SEF Gala on April 14 at 6:00 p.m. at Gilley’s Event Center in Dallas and be a part of the foundation’s mission to support the Sunnyvale ISD by funding exciting new learning opportunities for Sunnyvale students and teachers.
