Proceeds from the evening support the creative ideas and classroom projects by Lamar CISD teachers that would otherwise go unfunded. L.E.A.F. also offers scholarship to graduating Lamar CISD students and to paraprofessionals working on their teaching certificates.

In 17 years of existence, L.E.A.F. has invested more than $3.4 million into LCISD schools.
