Gala 2019 image

Thank you!


The Dutchess Community College Foundation would like to thank you for attending and supporting Our Community’s Bridge to the Future gala, which was held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at the Grandview. The College truly is the bridge that many in our community need to reach their goals. The money raised supports the more than $450,000 in scholarships awarded each year by the DCC Foundation to over 250 students.

We were 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 were delighted Carol Gordon received 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 was 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.

We hope you will join us next year in celebrating future honorees while providing critical support for the students of Dutchess Community College. Now more than ever, DCC students need your financial assistance. To make a gift to the Foundation, please click here.

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.
