Money raised for scholarships at Gala

By Deion Glass - Staff Reporter



The Highline College Foundation annual Gala netted $90,000. It was on April 27 at Cedarbrook lodge this year.

 Approximately 170 people dined on beef tenderloin and stuffed Pacific sole or a vegetarian dish before opening their wallets to help Highline students.

 "These funds support scholarships, projects and programs such as athletics," said Foundation Executive Director Josh Gerstmann.  

After Helen Nash from the ACHIEVE program spoke about her experiences at Highline and encouraged attendees to contribute to the Foundation's General Scholarship Fund, $42,600 was raised through paddle raises. 

"These funds specifically go to the General Scholarship Fund," Gerstman said. 

The Foundation awards more than 200 scholarships on an annual basis, he said.

 "The Gala is just one of the many ways we raise money to support funds for scholarships, emergency funds, and special projects," Gerstman said.

Next up will be the annual T-Bird Classic Golf Tournament on Friday, June 14, the day after Commencement. 

The event at Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club will raise funds for the college's athletics programs.

There will be prizes and dinner is provided for those who attend.

The tournament will be a four-person scramble that begins at 12:30 p.m. with a shotgun start. Check-in is at 10 a.m.
