Annual Gold Star Gala

Goldstar Racing hosts- The Great Circum Navigation 2021


Thank you for your support of the Monroe Community College Foundation's 23rd Annual Gold Star Gala presented by M&T Bank. Thanks to your generosity, nearly $222,000 (net) has been raised in support of MCC students.

With scholarship recipients graduating at nearly twice the rate of students without scholarship support, funds raised make it possible for more students to pursue their dreams and reach their goals. We are grateful for your support of MCC students and your investment in public higher education for Greater Rochester.

Special thanks to our Honorary Chairs Vernita & Emerson Fullwood with Lauren Dixon & Mike Schwabl, as well as our committee co-chairs Melanie & Jeremy Wolk with Courtney Dixon & Corey James. Finally, a deeply heartfelt thank you to our gala committee for their dedication, creativity, and resourcefulness in making this year's gala one to remember!
