South Suburban College Foundation Seeks Support For Scholarship Fundraiser Gala

Press Release Icon

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – Each year the South Suburban College Foundation (SSCF) has an annual spring gala from which all proceeds benefit scholarship programs. The SSCF is now seeking support from local residents, friends and partners for Showcase 2016: Dreams & Destinations, to be held on April 29, 2016, at Glenwoodie Golf Club.

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. Individuals and local businesses can support this mission while marketing themselves to approximately 300 guests through tax-deductible sponsorships and auction gifts. Tickets are also available for $125 each.

This year, South Holland’s John “Doc” Magon will receive the 2016 SSC Foundation Cornerstone Award and a portion of the Silent Auction proceeds will benefit the Patricia Chase Magon Scholarship Fund. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and features an open bar and plated dinner, silent auction, dancing, and the outstanding music of Rhonda High Browne & Pieces.

Donations for this cause are fully tax deductible. Registrations and sponsorships can be made online from www.ssc.edu/foundation. The 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 26 of the south suburban area’s finest business, civic and community leaders. The SSCF has now awarded over $1.6 million in scholarships since 1989. In 2015, over $100,000 in scholarship funds were awarded to SSC students.
