Valparaiso Elks Vegas Night Supports Scholarships for High School Kids

elks-usaMany many years ago we had to call our Vegas nights, Feather Parties, but it turned into Vegas night. Every year we have a Vegas night where we try to raise $2000 or more to help local high school kids.

The Elks organization gives out more scholarships than any organization besides the U.S Government. The Elks National Foundation provides more than $3.64 million in college scholarships each year through its three scholarship programs.

The application process and deadlines vary for each program. All applications must go through a local Elks Lodge before reaching the Elks National Foundation office.

Contact your high school counselor for more information or your local Elks Lodge. You also may go on line to for any questions. If you would like to buy a ticket to Vegas Night please call the lodge at 219 462 5421 or see your local Elk member.
