The Geneva Academic Foundation’s Steel game fundraiser was a great success. Families from all over Geneva came out to support the GAF on Friday as the Chicago Steel beat the Madison Capitols 4-0.

Thanks to Geneva Academic Foundation supporters and Chicago Steel fans, the Geneva Academic Foundation raised $7,200! The jersey auction alone raised $5,100, the highest total in all four years of this event. An additional $2,100 was raised through ticket sales. After the game, Steel players delivered their jerseys to the winning bidders and stayed to take pictures and sign autographs.

“On behalf of the GAF, thank you to FONA, the surrounding community and the Chicago Steel for an amazing event!” said GAF President Julie Post-Smith. “You are all helping us to support Geneva students!”

Steel President Dan Lehv expressed his appreciation for all who participated in making this night a success.
