The Niagara College Foundation’s 22nd annual Seafood Gala, held April 8 at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, generated $225,000 in support of student learning and success.

A sold out crowd of business, community and educational leaders attended the event, raising $145,000 to fund new facilities, and scholarships and bursaries through the Building Futures Campaign.  A portion of the revenue will be matched by the Ontario Trust for Student Support program, increasing the total raised to $225,000.

“This was the best Seafood Gala ever, and we are very grateful to our sponsors and guests who help our students pursue their educational dreams,” said Sean Kennedy, Vice-President, Student and External Relations and CEO of the Niagara College Foundation.

Gala chair, Vittoria Wikston, led the planning team in creating an atmosphere that featured a spectacular buffet, and silent and live auctions. More than 70 students from a variety of programs volunteered at the event.

Entertainment was provided by 80 young dancers from local studios, pianists Frank Krahn and John Sherwood, harpist Alyssa Michalsky, and band Sister Act.  Lead sponsors were Fallsview Casino Resort, Casino Cares, Aquicon Construction and Sun Media.
