All proceeds from the annual student benefit will support students at the college’s Kokomo Campus.
KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College will hold its Gala for Student Success on Friday, April 29, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Kokomo Event Center, 1500 N. Reed Road. The event — which supports scholarships and other initiatives that benefit students at the college’s Kokomo Campus — replaces Ribs, White and Blues as Ivy Tech’s annual fundraiser.
The event has become a Kokomo tradition over the years and is the principal source of scholarship funds for students at Ivy Tech Kokomo. Last year’s fundraiser brought in approximately $16,000 for student scholarships — and every penny counted as the need for scholarships and other student-focused initiatives is great.
The event will feature dinner as well as live and silent auctions. The auction will feature many fantastic items including a luxury suite at the Hilton Grand Vacation Club at the Flamingo Resort in Las Vegas; a condo at Indian Peaks Resort in Colorado; a stay at Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio; a Ghost Busters ghost hunt; a Fender guitar; Chili Head basket; a framed original painting by John Mellencamp; tickets to the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra; and many more.
Tickets are $30 and are available at Ivy Tech’s main Kokomo campus, 1815 E. Morgan St. Limited seating is available.
