To create an annual event bringing visibility, recognizing friends, and securing resources for college scholarships.
The Black Tie Harvest is Iowa Western Community College’s largest single fundraising event, raising 1.7 million dollars during the past 17 years.The Black Tie Harvest for Scholarships event is an important event, providing scholarship support to IWCC students. With more than 80 percent of IWCC students qualifying for financial assistance, the need for scholarship support is greater than ever.
Proceeds from the 2016 Black Tie Harvest will directly benefit the Iowa Western Pottawattamie Promise scholarship fund. Pottawattamie Promise is a joint initiative of Iowa Western, AKSARBEN Foundation, Iowa West Foundation and Peter Kiewit Foundation to improve post-secondary education preparation, access and completion so that students can obtain good jobs, earn competitive wages and contribute to our community. Each year, the initiative awards full scholarships to select Pottawattamie county graduates. In the fall of 2015, Iowa Western welcomed the first cohort of 45 Pottawattamie Promise scholars and the second cohort of 65 new recipients will begin in the fall of 2016. Money raised by the 2016 Black Tie Harvest will provide essential financial support to Pottawattamie Promise scholars as they pursue their educational goals.
