ACC Foundation Hosts 18th Gala

Alvin Community College supporters took to the dance floor to benefit student scholarships and staff development at the 18th Annual Foundation Gala on November 17.

Paint the Town Red featured a performance by the Royal Dukes Band.

Donations were raised through live and silent auctions during the Gala.

The Foundation also collected $100 individual donations as part of the Adopt A Grant program for benches and solar lighting for the jogging trail, music equipment, the Upward Bound Program, Workforce Development and the ACC Lab School Snow Day.

The Gala is the Foundation's biggest fundraiser and proceeds are used to establish several scholarships, innovative grant and three staff excellence awards.

Other funds are used for the three Excellence Awards given every year to a professional employee, a faculty member and a technical support, clerical or maintenance employee. The Innovative Initiative Grants are awarded to staff members annually to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward innovative and creative approaches to fulfill the mission of the college
