About

The Auto Show Gala is an annual tradition that has raised $250,000 in scholarship funds and celebrates the Northwood University International Auto Show and Homecoming weekend on the Midland, Michigan campus. 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 nearly $90,000 for scholarships. Your sponsorship in 2015 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 important, 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, all proceeds will be split evenly between the Northwood University Town & Campus Endowed Scholarship and the Alumni Legacy Student Scholarship.

Thank you,

The Northwood Gala Committee
