8th Annual Northwood University
Auto Show Gala
Thank you for visiting and supporting the 8th Annual Auto Show Gala - 2019 details will be announced soon!
Highlights from the 2018 Gala
The Auto Show Gala is an annual tradition that has raised more than $470,000 in endowed scholarship funds and celebrates the Northwood University International Auto Show and Homecoming weekend, bringing alumni and friends back home to Midland, Michigan to celebrate. The event caters to a sellout crowd of Northwood friends, alumni and community partners. With a new location (Midland Center for the Arts) AND new entertainment (Chateau Band) for 2018, be sure to join us for a night you’ll never forget!
Last year’s Gala set a record by raising more than $116,000 for endowed scholarships. Your sponsorship in 2018 can help us reach new heights and provide more funds to talented students who would otherwise not be able to attend Northwood University. A record night also 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 Endowed Student Scholarship.
We invite you to review the sponsorship opportunites below.
