More than 350 of Lake and Sumter counties’ philanthropists, and business and civic leaders will gather for the 32nd annual Gala Auction for the Lake-Sumter State College Foundation at 6pm April 15 at the Savannah Center, 1545 Buena Vista Blvd., The Villages.
Live entertainment, an auction, and multimedia presentations are on the program. “An Evening at the Masquerade” is the theme.
More than 5,250 students have received scholarships in the past eight years from the foundation. “We have invited some of the students we have provided scholarships to so donors and attendees can see the big difference their donations make in people’s lives,” says Erin O’Steen Lewin, development manager for the foundation.
“Our goal is to raise $70,000 so we can help more students start the journey to an accessible and affordable quality education at Lake-Sumter.”
Individual gala tickets cost $150. To learn more, call 352.365.3506.
