2017 Gala

Sponsorships and tickets: Jesse Aerni

Thank you for helping students find their spark at PCC!

Thank you for making An Evening for Opportunity a roaring success!

Nearly 500 friends of PCC attended this year's sold-out gala, raising a record-breaking $511,000 to support more students than ever before!

The evening program included a moving keynote address by student Melissa Lamproe and remarks from Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Patron Award Honoree Betty Duvall.

Thank you to all who attended for warming up around the hearth at Portland’s Grand Lodge for the night.

Couldn’t make it this year? You can still help put students on the path to success by making a gift to the PCC Foundation.

Check out the glamorous gala event photos.

Thank you to our sponsors!
