Foundation “Gala on the Green” set for September 15

Fundraiser for Student Scholarships & Programs

UKIAH, CA — The Mendocino College Foundation’s 2007 Gala Fundraiser, “Gala on the Green”, is set for Saturday, September 15, at 5:00 p.m., at La Ribera Vineyards.

This annual event helps raise funds to provide scholarships and fund various educational programs at the College. For 2007-08, the Foundation is providing $107,000 in scholarships and $70,000 for programs and equipment.

“The wonderful support of our communities have made Gala fundraisers so successful in recent years,” states Rhonada Clausen, Gala committee chair. “Helping students attend Mendocino College is such a worthwhile cause and everyone has a very enjoyable evening at the same time.”

“This year’s Gala will be held at a beautiful new outdoor location at La Ribera vineyards on Old River Road between Ukiah and Hopland. The Gala includes a martini bar, catered dinner and local wines generously donated by Mendocino and Lake county wineries that support the Foundation and the College. John Bogner will again lead the live and silent auctions. Singer Paula Samonte will be accompanied by the twenty-piece Mendocino College Jazz Band. We invite the community to join us in supporting student success here at home.”

The cost for this fundraising event is $75 per person and tables for eight can be reserved for $750. Tickets are available at Mendocino Book Company in Ukiah, Leaves of Grass Bookstore in Willits, from Foundation members, or by calling the Foundation office at 467-1018. A list of Foundation members is available on the College’s website at  Tickets are expected to be sold out again this year, so early ticket purchases are encouraged.
