DREAMers Gala surpasses fund-raising goal
Photos and Story by Janis Nichols
The Event Center at the campus was packed to capacity with guests expressing their support for DREAMers through a silent auction and bid-card raising led by State Rep. Diego Hernandez, House District 47.
The celebration started with the Aztec Dancing and concluded with Ballet Folklorico Mexico en la Piel. Rock Creek DREAM Center coordinator Jhoana Monroy challenged the audience to beat last year’s gala event which raised $44,800.
“We are so grateful for this support,” Monroy said. “It means everything to our students.”
