One month until third annual Five Star Gala

One month from today, MCC supporters from across the region will come together to celebrate MCC students at the third annual Five Star Gala in downtown Kansas City, Mo.

The gala, which raises money for student scholarships and campus projects, has surpassed its annual fundraising goal thanks to a large, committed planning and fundraising committee. The current total has surpassed $192,000 and continues to grow, says Nancy McCallum in the MCC Foundation. Last year’s total was $113,000.

At the event, which will be held at the Sheraton Crown Center on Thursday, March 29, the philanthropically renowned Dunn family will be honored. The award for the Dunns is being designed and produced by artist Matt Castilleja, an alumnus of the welding program at MCC-Business & Technology.

The gala is chaired by Carolyn Watley, president of CBIZ and chair-elect of the MCC Foundation’s board of directors. Honorary chairs are Henry & Marion Bloch and Don and Adele Hall.
