South Suburban College Foundation Seeks Support For Scholarship Fundraiser Gala

SSCF logo

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – Each year the South Suburban College Foundation (SSCF) hosts a spring gala from which proceeds benefit critical scholarship opportunities. The SSCF is now seeking support from local residents, alumni and community partners for Showcase 2019: Blueprints for a Future Workforce on April 12, 2019, at Odyssey Country Club. This year’s event will both highlight, and in part support, Manufacturing & Technical Education programs at SSC.

The annual gala evening event begins at 6:30 p.m. and features an open bar and premier buffet dinner, silent auction, dancing, and the outstanding music of Rhonda High Browne & Pieces. Individuals and local businesses can support this mission while marketing themselves to approximately 300 guests through several tax-deductible sponsorship levels and auction gifts. Tickets are also available for $125 each.

With the cost of higher education on the rise and the level of state funding on the decline, students are finding it more and more difficult to afford a full-time college education. The SSC Foundation’s support is often critical for students to begin or continue their college education. Donations for this cause are fully tax deductible.

Registrations, auction donations and sponsorships can all be made online from sscf.givesmart.com. (Foundation Staff will pick up donations for auction.) For more information, please call (708) 596-2000, ext. 2463 or email foundation@ssc.edu.

The SSC Foundation is a philanthropic, not-for-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors composed of 25 of the south suburban area’s generous business, civic and community leaders. The SSCF has now awarded over $2 million in scholarships since 1989. In 2018, over $125,000 in scholarship funds were awarded to SSC students.
