Back To Front Page


The Duneland Education Foundation will kick off the Annual $10,000 Scholarship Raffle at the Chesterton High School Varsity boys basketball game today Friday, January 25. Raffle tickets will be sold before the game and everyone that buys a ticket has a chance to shoot a half court shot during half-time for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Each raffle ticket is $25.

The Duneland Education is a non-for profit organization that has provided support to Duneland schools since 1995. Over the years, the DEF has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in financial support for school projects, programs and equipment, where there has been a shortfall in government funding.

Tickets will be sold until 5:00 p.m. Friday, April 26, the day of DEF’s Annual Gala. Tickets may be purchased from a DEF Board member or at the main branch of the Porter Bank in Porter. For further information contact DEF Executive Director Colleen Grimes at

The winner of the $10,000 Scholarship will be announced at DEF’s Annual Gala on Friday, April 26, at The Spa Special Events Center in Porter, from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m., featuring the band Dave and Rae. The Gala is DEF’s most important fundraiser of the year and all are encouraged to attend and show their support for DEF and all the Duneland Schools.
