Outstanding events which increase awareness, recognize achievements, honor scholarship recipients and raise funds for the Black Hawk College Quad Cities Foundation.
In June 2016 we held our first Golf Outing. This four person Scramble Golf event was held at the beautiful Fyre Lake Golf Course located in Sherrard, Illinois. The event, raises funds for Black Hawk College students and builds awareness of the Foundation, was a resounding success.
Proceeds from this event support to Black Hawk College students by providing additional scholarships and emergency funds through the Foundation and student athlete and team resources for the Athletics Department.
Sponsored by Missman, Inc., Fyre Lake Golf Club, Breedlove Sporting Goods, KJWW, Illowa Construction Labor and Management Council (IMPACT), Markman Peat Corporation, Rich and Betsey Morthland, Rock Valley Physical Therapy, Pappa’s O’Connor, and Tri-City Building and Construction Trades Council.
The Black Hawk College East Foundation sponsors a Scholarship Recognition Banquet annually in the fall to recognize the generosity of its scholarship benefactors and award recipients. A benefactor is asked to speak each year about their decision to establish a scholarship fund and the impact of their generosity on the students attending the East Campus. The award recipients are also invited to say a few words about how the scholarship has helped provide access to higher education and enhanced their lives.
The 2015 banquet brought 140 scholarship donors and students to the event. Student recipients were invited to share a few words about how the scholarship they received has helped to provide them with the financial resources necessary to continue to pursue their academic dreams and achieve their goals.
Held in November 2015, this special event featured a dinner, a commemorative program about Congressman Lane Evans and special guest speaker. Get complete event details
