MCC and Foundation host gala to celebrate 50 years

MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College and the MCC Foundation are hosting a 50th anniversary party, and tickets to the event are now available. The 50th Anniversary Gala will celebrate 50 years of serving Mohave County and will provide options to help raise money for the President’s Scholarship Endowment fund, which will help the foundation provide college scholarships to local students.

“The 50th Anniversary Gala offers MCC and the Foundation the opportunity to celebrate our 50 years of achievement and overall contributions with community partners, friends and alumni. This Gala culminates a year of various celebrations in each community and highlights our commitment to offer high quality education at an affordable price,” said MCC President Dr. Stacy Klippenstein. “During this event, we wish to hit our goal of raising over $50,000 for the 50th Anniversary President’s Scholarship Endowment fund, which will allow MCC to offer scholarships to students in each community we serve.”

More than $20,000 have already been raised for the endowment fund, including donations past presidents of the college and Dr. Klippenstein.

All donations are made to the MCC Foundation, which is the nonprofit organization that helps provide college scholarships to students throughout Mohave County.

Foundation members want to not only raise funds for scholarships, but also “friendraise,” which is expanding relationships with business, industry, government and educational partners throughout the region.

Individual tickets are $75 per person and a VIP table for eight people is $750 and those organizations will be acknowledged during the event. Dinner is included with ticket. Last day to purchase tickets is December 6. There will be an auction, photo booth and fireworks. Tickets can be purchased online at

Doors open at 6 p.m. Friday, December 17 at the London Bridge Resort Convention Center, 1477 Queens Bay, Lake Havasu City.
