The Plainfield Foundation for Excellence receives a $10,500 check from the funds raised at the 2019 Plainfield Giving Gala which was hosted by the Friends for Charitable Giving in partnership with the Plainfield Area Chamber of Commerce. The money will be used for community service scholarships for high school seniors and to pay the fees for a special education athletic league for Plainfield Academy.
