Our Premiere Fundraising Event

Our inaugural Black & Gold Celebration even, held in 2023, included the Black Hawk College Alumni Hall of Fame induction, a silent auction, and live music by the BHC Jazz Ensemble. Special guest Chad Pregracke, BHC Alumni Hall of Fame member and founder of Living Lands & Waters, entertained and enlightened as the keynote speaker.

A Success for the College and Students

"We are thrilled with the outcome of the Black & Gold Celebration,” said Zenaida Landeros, executive director of the Black Hawk College Foundation—“we were able to add [more than] $43,000 in funding for student emergencies, student scholarships, and mini-grants for staff and faculty.”
