College Foundation To Host Fall Gala Fundraiser Event

Posted October 6, 2021 at 3:17 pm

The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Foundation will be hosting its first Gala since 2010 on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at 5pm at the Casimir Cultural Center in historic Cambria City. This year’s semi-formal event follows a Scottish Highlands theme and is slated to be one of the most unique events in the area.

The Foundation Fall Gala will be the Casimir Cultural Center’s inaugural event since Stella Property Development began renovations on the venue in 2015. The College Foundation is appreciative of this year’s presenting sponsor, Somerset Trust Company.

The grandiose evening will feature a happy hour with heavy appetizers, a sit-down dinner, and a large array of assorted desserts catered by Asiago’s Tuscan Italian restaurant. Attendees will be entertained by a pianist, Jazz in your Face, and a fire dancer throughout the evening. A historical scavenger hunt is planned during the Gala; guests will search for unique artifacts within the venue that were preserved during the Cultural Center’s renovation.

“The Penn Highlands Community College Foundation is beyond excited to be working with Stella, Property Development and Event Production on such a fun and elaborate event,” stated Kathleen Morrell, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement. “Cambria City is a hidden gem within Johnstown; having a fundraiser there that benefits our local students and our regional learning communities is something we should really be proud of and celebrate. Not only is the venue exciting, donations and ticket proceeds help our students with scholarships and more. That’s what it’s all about – having a good time to help students.”
