Ohlone College Hosts 2nd Annual Hilltop Gala

Fremont, Calif., October 8, 2018—Ohlone College invites you to the 2nd Annual Hilltop Gala on Saturday, November 3, 2018. Join our community and Legacy Sponsor Fremont Bank for the celebration of the year as we come together to raise funds for our new Academic Core Buildings.

“We are really excited about this year’s event as the Academic Core Buildings are coming to fruition on our campus,” says Dr. Gari Browning, President and Superintendent of the Ohlone Community College District. “The support that the community shows by attending this event is a testament to the affinity they feel for Ohlone and for the important role we play in serving the Tri-Cities area.”

Enjoy hosted wine and signature cocktails, and select from entrée offerings of mesquite wood roasted tri-tip, roasted ginger & miso crusted Alaskan halibut, or vegetarian polenta cakes with grilled vegetables. The event will be hosted by special guest emcee Roberta Gonzales, star of the KPIX 5 travel show “Where’s Roberta?”

Bring your dancing shoes for a night of fun where you’ll move to the sound of classic California soul & funk performed by the Big Blue Soul Revue! The evening wraps up with a live auction to bid on one-of-a-kind goods, vacation packages, and more. You won’t want to miss it!  

Proceeds from the Hilltop Gala go directly to furnishing the new Academic Core Buildings with the latest technology and equipment to give the next generation of Ohlone College students a modern learning environment where they can thrive. Scheduled to open in 2019, the Academic Core consists of a new Science Center, Arts Building, and Learning Commons, and is set to elevate higher education for the Tri-Cities community and students for years to come. 

Individual and table tickets are on sale now through October 22. Sponsorship packages are also available. This event is black tie optional and includes free valet parking in the Ohlone South parking structure off of Pine Street.
