Foundation Scholarship Gala
The Bronx Community College (BCC) Foundation Scholarship Gala is the College’s leading fundraising event in support of BCC students. It attracts approximately 300 industry leaders, educators, entrepreneurs, government officials, community partners and a host of friends and supporters.
