BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Housatonic Community College will host its Eighth Annual Alumni Hall of Fame Gala Saturday, Nov. 19, on its campus in Bridgeport.
The event will celebrate the college's commitment to supporting students in reaching their academic goals.
Nearly 350 of the area’s residents, supporters and community leaders will attend an evening of cocktails, dinner and inspiration.
With a theme of ‘Stay Close, Go Far,’ the evening will present guest speakers and recognize HCC alumni who have achieved outstanding success and made an exceptional impact on their community.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Housatonic Community College Foundation Scholarship Fund, which helps finance the education of deserving students enrolled in HCC’s associate degree and certificate programs.
“We ask the community to save the date for the gala, which has grown into the Foundation’s largest annual fundraising event,” said Richard DuPont, executive director of Institutional Advancement. “The gala goes beyond honoring the devoted alumni in our community; it raises important funds for our Scholarship Fund, which supports students who have demonstrated academic achievement and a need for financial assistance.”
The gala's media sponsors are Outfront Media and Trans-Ad Outdoor LTD.
To inquire about sponsorship opportunities, contact Jenna Moss at JMoss@hcc.commnet.edu and to learn more about the gala, contact the HCC Foundation office at (203) 332-5293.
