POWELL, Wyoming ─ The glamour and excitement of the roaring twenties return to Park County Saturday, Oct. 11, when the Northwest College Foundation hosts an “All That Jazz” gala to celebrate the opening of the new Yellowstone Building.
“We invite everyone to join us in celebrating the new energy the Yellowstone Building brings to the campus and to the whole community,” NWC Foundation executive director Shelby Wetzel, said. “Even though it was built with no new taxes or bond levy, it wouldn’t have been possible without incredible and generous community support. We want to celebrate this special collaboration with all the glitter associated with one of America’s most prosperous decades.”
The 1920s-themed event gets underway at 6 p.m. with valet parking on the west side of the building. After guests give their password at the door, they’re invited to embark on a mini tour of the building’s instructional technology highlights while enjoying live music, drinks and dinner.
A silent auction will feature several locally inspired packages, including jewelry from The Golden Buffalo, a Keurig machine from Powell Office Supply and weekend getaways.
The “All That Jazz” gala is partially subsidized by a lineup of corporate sponsors that includes Chartwells, CTA Architects and Engineers, Edward Jones, Morgan Stanley, Pepsi of Powell and Wyoming Financial Insurance.
All proceeds from the evening will be used toward construction costs of the Yellowstone Building.
Tickets cost $60 per person, or $50 for NWC Presidential Partners (donors of more than $1,000).
