Recent Events

2021 CAEF Golf Tournament - Results!

On Saturday, July 17, 10 teams (40 golfers) participated in the CAEF Golf Tournament at Majestic Oaks Signature Course.  Thanks to our golfers, sponsors, raffle donors, and a few individuals who chose to support the event with a monetary donation, we raised over $13,000 to support educational grants and scholarships for Centennial students.  We were pleased with this turnout, given it's the inaugural year of our event and coming off a pandemic.  We look forward to growing the Golf Tournament in the future!

Eight teams participated in our fall Cornhole Tournament held in conjunction with the Chain of Lakes Rotary Rock 'n' Run event held Sunday, August 22nd. We had wonderful weather and great community fun as teams tossed for a chance to win Visa gift cards. Congratulations to our team winners!

Let's Invest in Education Together

When you support CAEF—whether you attend the annual gala or give a legacy gift—you fuel dreams.

Education reaps rewards. Through grants, scholarships, and recognition, the Centennial Area Education Foundation (CAEF) fosters learning in the Centennial School District and supports local students pursuing college and technical education.
