Foundation Innovation Celebration

Foundation Innovation Celebration

While we were looking forward to celebrating in person this month, the Innovation Celebration committee, in partnership with Gateway facilities and Foundation staff, came to the decision that it would be safest not to hold a large gathering in Fall 2021.

Therefore, we will not hold an in-person or virtual Gateway Foundation Presents: Innovation Celebration this year. No tickets will be sold. However, the Foundation is delighted to continue with one of the most popular segments of past events: an auction featuring experiences only available at Gateway.

Have you ever wondered how our law enforcement students train for real-life situations? Do you love to play guitar and have always wanted to build your own? Would you like to get a birds-eye view of Kenosha? The Gateway Foundation Presents: Innovation Celebration auction has something for everyone! Be sure to register and place your bids to make one of these Gateway-focused experiences (or several others) your own.

Visit the Auction: Sign in or create an account to place your bids in the online auction by November 8.
