MAHOPAC, N.Y. - On Saturday, March 5, the Lakeland Education Foundation (LEF) celebrated their honorees: Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School principal Robert Bergmann, Funflatables owners Tommy and Vanessa Dilorenzo, and past LEF treasurer and current Board of Education Trustee Mike Daly.

The evening at the Villa Barone in Mahopac was filled with cocktails, casino tables, gambling with funny money, a silent auction and many special raffle prizes. All $38,000-plus raised at the event will benefit the Lakeland Central School District. LEF has awarded nearly $700,000 in education-related grants in the past 20-plus years.
