An evening for Opportunity 2015 - Lunar Landing

2015 PCC Foundation Gala

On a hot summer night in 1969, the world watched in wonder as the impossible became reality. We held our breath, fixed in the blue glow of our television sets, as those famous words crackled back to earth: That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

For many students, going to college can seem as extraordinary as walking on the moon.

Portland Community College can help them overcome barriers and go further than they ever thought possible. Your support may seem like a small step, but it empowers students to take a giant leap toward their future.

Join the PCC Foundation for our annual gala to support scholarships and success programs – this year, in retro space-age style! Strap on your moonboots, because it’s going to be out of this world!

Live music

By Portland’s 60s sci-fi inspired surf rock band, WaveSauce.
