About

The Auto Show Gala is an annual tradition that has raised more than $600,000 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.

Last year’s Gala set a record by raising more than $120,000 for scholarships. Your sponsorship in 2019 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 opportunities below.

On behalf of the Northwood Gala Committee, thank you.
