The Auto Show Gala is an annual tradition that has raised over $360,000 in endowed scholarship funds and celebrates the Northwood University International Auto Show and Homecoming weekend bringing alumni back to Midland, Michigan to celebrate. The event hosts a sellout crowd of Northwood friends, alumni and community partners; includes a live auction; and features the Simone Vitale Band for a night you’ll never forget.
Last year’s Gala set a record by raising $100,000 for endowed scholarships. Your sponsorship in 2017 can help us reach new heights and provide more funds to talented students who would otherwise not be able to attend Northwood University. Perhaps just as importantly, a record night sustains The Northwood Idea and our mission to develop the future leaders of a global, free-enterprise society.
In honor of the women whose ingenuity and talent created the first Auto Show Gala, net proceeds will benefit both the Northwood University Town & Campus Endowed Scholarship and the Alumni Legacy Student Scholarship.
