South Suburban College Foundation Seeks Support for Scholarship Fundraiser Gala

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL—(ENEWSPF)—February 28, 2014. Each year the South Suburban College Foundation (SSCF) has an annual spring gala from which all proceeds benefit scholarship programs.  The SSCF is now seeking support from local partners for Showcase 2014: SSC Global, a dinner-dance-auction fundraiser to be held on April 25, 2014, at Glenwoodie Golf Club. 

With the cost of higher education on the rise and the level of state funding on the decline, students are finding it more and more difficult to afford a full-time college education.   The SSC Foundation’s support is often critical for students to begin or continue their college education. Individuals and local businesses can support this mission while marketing themselves to approximately 300 guests through tax-deductible sponsorships and auction gifts.  Tickets are also available for $125 each.

This year’s gala will focus on Foundation support of SSC’s global connections–including study abroad scholarships, faculty exchange programs, and more.  The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and features an open bar and plated dinner, silent auction, dancing, and the outstanding music of The Connexion. 

Sponsorship levels are as follows:

$2,000 Ruby: Establish Scholarship, Top Sponsor Signage and Announced at event

$1,000 Gold: Top Sponsor Signage and Announced at event

$500 Silver: Sponsor Signage

$300 Bronze: Sponsor Signage

Donations for this cause are an investment in the economic development of the south suburban region and a better future for thousands of residents who depend on SSC for their education and training. 

Checks can be made payable to “SSC Foundation” at 15800 S. State Street, South Holland, IL 60473. Paypal and credit card charges can also be made online at or through Paypal transfers to [email protected].  The Foundation Staff will pick up donations for auction.  For more information, please call (708) 596-2000, ext. 2463 or email [email protected]
