Everyone is encouraged to support local residents. Watch for your favorite team’s fishbowl at various businesses prior to event. 

Investing in the education provides area businesses with a skilled workforce and encourages business development. The student recipients are additionally motivated to complete their degrees as a result of others believing in them. More than 80 percent of Iowa Lakes graduates remain in the area and work, contributing to the local economy.

Tickets for event go on sale Nov. 1, and are expected to go quickly. All seating is reserved. Tables of eight are $400, with individual tickets available at $50. Price includes appetizers and desserts. 

All proceeds from this event go toward scholarships for students who reside in Palo Alto County and attend Iowa Lakes Community College. These students appreciate the financial support as they pursue their education goals.
