The Northwood Gala began out of the interest and ingenuity of the Town & Campus group. Net proceeds will benefit both the Northwood University Town & Campus Endowed Scholarship and the Alumni Legacy Student Scholarship.

This event takes place during the Northwood University International Auto Show weekend on the Midland, Michigan campus. The gala is a celebration with Northwood friends, alumni and community partners, including a live auction and the return of the Simone Vitale Band, for a night you'll never forget. In 2013, the Northwood Gala was extremely successful with a sold out crowd of 280 people and $65,000 raised for scholarships. Over the three years the gala has been held, $167,000 has been raised for scholarships.

Sponsorship of the gala will help us to continue the growth of these scholarships, so we can provide more funds to talented students who would otherwise not be able to attend Northwood University. Your help supports the Northwood Idea and mission to develop the future leaders of a global, free-enterprise society.
