The Annual Gala is the major fundraising event for the year and includes entertainment, silent and live auction, a delicious gourmet menu prepared by HGTC professional chef instructors, and so much more. The event will be held virtually and raise funds to support the culinary programs and scholarships for culinary students attending HGTC. This annual event has proven to be a phenomenal success, with over $950,000 raised in the past twelve years.
“We are thrilled to be able to host the 13th Annual HGTC Foundation Gala- Home Edition this year. No doubt this event is going to be very different from the events we’ve hosted in the past. The Foundation is very fortunate to have the ongoing support of HTC and other local businesses,” said Mr. Neyle Wilson, HGTC Foundation President. “The committed support of our sponsors and loyalty of our attendees are what makes this the best event of the year. Over the past 12 years, the Annual Gala has raised over $950,000. We are hopeful we can achieve the one million dollar level this year.”
The purpose of the HGTC Foundation is to raise funds to support the programs, services and activities of HGTC, its students and employees, and to create and cultivate positive relationships between the College and the community.
“The Annual Gala event has been an extraordinary success for the College raising nearly one million dollars in the past twelve years for scholarships, student support, and numerous college projects,” said Dr. Marilyn Murph Fore, HGTC President. “We are so pleased with the continued support of our Foundation President, Board of Directors, Chaine Des Rotisseurs, and numerous business and industry partners in our community.”
The HGTC Foundation invites the community to become involved as the College continues to foster its reputation as a high quality learning and teaching institution with a student-centered environment. The community can enhance this vision with financial support for scholarships, programs, facilities or other needs; donation of equipment or technology; mentoring students; providing internships; and service on various academic or foundation advisory boards.
