Your donation makes a world of difference.
Since its inception in 2000, the annual Starry, Starry Night Gala has become a huge success by raising funds to enhance the College’s ability to provide educational excellence.
State funding is not sufficient to meet critical needs of the instructional areas for many of the programs we offer. With your sponsorship of the Gala, you help to provide students with hands-on education in c lassroom environments and in “real world” learning labs. You are helping to create a high-quality, local work force that meets the demands of the current and future job market.
Proceeds from this year’s Gala will increase scholarship opportunities for Workforce Training Certificate Programs that prepare students for high demand jobs that lead to long term employment. Scholarships will focus on these short-term programs in Allied Health and Technical/Trades training. Certifications include, but not limited to Automotive Service and Sales, Building Trades, Dental Assistant, Kitchen and Food Safety, Phlebotomy Technician, and Pharmacy Technician.
In addition, the Owens Campus plays an integral role as a provider of cultural opportunities. Proceeds from the Gala wi ll support arts programming in our theater and help us continue to enhance quality of life for our community.
We hope that you can join us again this year with a sponsorship or through the purchase of tickets. Thank you for your commitment to Delaware Tech students!
