Annual Foundation Banquet

Each year we host a banquet in the fall to give thanks to the countless donors and friends who make the work of the Foundation possible. During the course of the evening we honor two individuals with special recognition. The first is the Ambassador Award; given to a recipient to recognize their contributions to their respective community and the philanthropic giving they have provided to the Foundation. The second award is the Young Achiever award; given to an alumnus under the age of 40 who has had significant success in their chosen career field.

Donors are given two tickets for both the banquet dinner and evening performance in the Brown Center Theatre. In recent years, we have been fortunate to team up with our theatre department and host our banquet on the opening night of their fall performance. This has been a remarkable benefit as it allows Foundation supporters to experience the quality of work and skill on display within our performing arts department.

Receiving an invitation to the Annual Foundation Banquet is a simple as becoming an annual Cowley College Foundation Member. Individuals who contribute $150 or more each year to the foundation (excluding the Tiger Booster Club) are considered members for the year!
