PCC Foundation's Annual "An Evening for Opportunity" Gala
Saturday, April 22, 2017 | 5:30pm | PureSpace – 1315 NW Overton Street

Join us at the PCC Foundation’s annual Evening for Opportunity, a fabulous event supporting student scholarships and success.

A Grand Lodge Gala

You're invited to PCC's sixth annual An Evening for Opportunity: Grand Lodge Gala. Come along as we take in the bounty of students' potential and imagination with sweeping views of Oregon's bright future.

This year's gala will feature remarks from PCC President Mark Mitsui and community partners, student speakers' stories of opportunity, Pacific NW cuisine and signature cocktails, and of course – music and dancing!

At the Grand Lodge Gala, we'll also be paying tribute to the 2017 Patron Award Winner, Betty Duvall, an educational trail blazer and longtime supporter of student success.

Get gussied up in your best "forest glamorous" or "lumberjack chic" (or black tie) and experience the awe-inspiring majesty of helping a student succeed!

Thank you for helping students succeed

Your support at the PCC gala makes a difference. By creating scholarships and strengthening academic support programs at PCC, you are giving students the tools they need to succeed.

Join the PCC Foundation for a fabulous evening honoring Betty Duvall, former PCC Foundation Board President and winners of the 2017 Patron Award.

Thank you to our sponsors!
