Gala 2019 image

Save the date! The 2019 Gala will be held on Saturday, March 30.


The Dutchess Community College Foundation is pleased to invite you to become a supporter of Our Community’s Bridge to the Future gala to be held Saturday, March 30, 2019 at the Grandview. The College truly is the bridge that many in our community need to reach their goals. We hope that you will celebrate with us by selecting a sponsorship or by placing an ad in our commemorative dinner journal. The money raised supports the more than $450,000 in scholarships awarded each year by the DCC Foundation to over 250 students.

We are honored to induct Lisa Morris ’85 and Sandy Williams ’60 into the DCC Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame for their outstanding professional contributions and commitment to our community.

We are delighted Carol Gordon will receive the Bernard Handel Community Leadership Award for her outstanding service, volunteer work and executive leadership to non-profit organizations throughout Dutchess County.

In addition, it is our pleasure to honor The Council of Industry with the Bridge to the Future Award, which recognizes individuals and organizations who have had a measurable impact on our community and who have enhanced the quality of life for those who live and work in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

Join us in celebrating these honorees while providing critical support for the students of Dutchess Community College. Now more than ever, DCC students need your financial assistance. Click here for a brochure providing you with opportunities for support through sponsorship and advertising.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Burnelle Roser at burnelle.roser@sunydutchess.edu or (845) 431-8402. Thank you so much for your consideration and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
