Reservations are now available for the event, set for 6 p.m. Thursday, June 12, at the Continental Ballroom, 920 Millbrook Lane, Kokomo, by contacting the Office of University Advancement, 765-455-9485 or email@example.com.
Planners have set a lofty goal for the Gala.
"Our goal is to have participation from each of the 14 counties that we serve," said Chancellor Susan Sciame-Giesecke. "With the support of our friends and donors, the opportunity to make an IU education more affordable for the students in north central Indiana is within our reach. I challenge leaders in each county to come to the gala to announce a scholarship for students in their community. We know that college graduates will contribute to the future growth of the cities where they work, live, and raise their families. It is a gift that will keep on giving."
Groups of donors, individuals and business owners, may provide an endowed scholarship by giving or pledging a minimum of $10,000, which can be given over a five-year period.
Reservations are $100 per person, and table partnership opportunities are also available. A portion of the cost is tax deductible.
Dress for the evening, which includes dinner and dancing, is festive cream and crimson.
