After the difficulties of the past year and the cancellation of our 2020 event, we are excited to be planning for the return of our Black Tie gala in 2021. While safety continues to be our utmost concern, we are optimistic that we will once again have the opportunity to gather together in support of Iowa Western student scholarships.

The annual Black Tie Harvest for Scholarships is the single largest fundraising event for Iowa Western Community College. Over the past 23 years, Black Tie events have raised more than $2.5 million in scholarships. On September 25, 2021, college partners and community supporters will once again gather on campus for the Black Tie Harvest dinner and auction; an elegant evening of fun, food, and fundraising.
