The annual Gold Star Gala presented by M&T Bank was suddenly cancelled due to the arrival of COVID-19. Although we were not able to host an in-person gathering, the committee created a virtual cocktail hour, via Zoom, which netted $220,000 in support of MCC students.
The virtual event was a success due to our guests and the generous support of Dixon Schwabl, Baldwin Richardson Foods, Robin & Tim Wentworth, LaBella Associates, Manning Squires Hennig, the Louis S. & Molly B. Wolk Foundation, and many others!
With scholarship recipients graduating at nearly twice the rate of students without scholarship support, funds raised at events like these make it possible for more students to pursue their dreams and reach their goals. We are grateful for the support of MCC students and our donor’s investment in public higher education for Greater Rochester.
