The 9th Annual Wine and Whiskey Walk is once again back. Tickets are $40 and are on sale now. We're also seeking volunteers to help with this fun event. The event will be held on Saturday, October 16th from 1-6 pm at the Junction City Shopping Center and all proceeds benefit the Peoria Public Schools Foundation. You won't want to miss it!
What is the annual Wine and Whiskey Walk?
The Wine and Whiskey Walk is a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon and raise money for public education. With over 30 samplings of different wines and whiskeys available, participants are encouraged to spend the day at Junction City exploring the shops, having tasty treats, and enjoying live entertainment. Souvenir wine tasting glass, raffle and door prize giveaways and free swag bags from Junction City are just some of the extra perks you receive for attending. This event is brought to you by Junction City Shopping Center, Born2Events and the Peoria Public Schools Foundation.

PPS Foundation's Calendar of Events for the 2021-2022 School Year:
6th Annual 365 Breakfast
We were so grateful to have been able to hold our annual 365 Breakfast on Thursday, January 7th. While it may have looked different than other years, the mission was still the same - to support Peoria Public Schools students, families and staff! Thank you to all who come through and picked up a curbside breakfast, donated and/or watched our virtual program!
Our 23rd Annual Golf Outing was a success!
Thank you to all who participated, donated, and supported our annual Golf Outing on July 20th. This is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we rely on it to provide funds for many of our programs. We are extremely happy to report that we exceeded our expectations and raised nearly $44,000! Next year's Golf Outing will be held on Monday, June 21st at the Country Club of Peoria. We are already looking forward to it and will send more information about the event early next year. Be sure to check out some pictures from this year's event by clicking on the picture below!
