Western Nevada College Foundation will host the Reach for the Stars fundraiser on Aug. 13.
Reach for the Stars Black Tie Gala is the college’s festive fundraiser to benefit local students seeking higher education.
This year, WNC’s newly renovated 55,000 square foot Library will be transformed into an elegant, Starry Night-themed event venue. This exclusive, black-tie event features a live performance by the Jeff Leep Orchestra and dancing under the “stars” in this venue overlooking Carson City.
Enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a complete dinner hosted by Chef Howard Jachens, gifts, as well as live and silent auctions. Jack C. Davis Observatory Director Dr. Thomas Herring and observatory volunteers will be on hand to share information about the Perseid Meteor Shower and help you stargaze through state-of-the-art telescopes.
You’re invited to connect with your community and support your community college students at this exclusive, fun-filled event.
The event begins at 6 p.m.
There are opportunities to sponsor different aspects of the event, including a table, bar, photo booth, entertainment, centerpiece, and more.
