The Foundation Night at the Races is the one event specifically designed for family enjoyment. Those who attend will be able to relax and view the races while enjoying world-class food. Plus, they will know that possess the knowledge that their attendance at the fundraiser is helping to provide scholarships to deserving HCCC students and advance the College’s growth and development.
Since 2004, our Night at the Races event has hosted friends, families, colleagues, and organizations from many different parts of the county and the state.
Our many supporters have one common drive:
Help the students at HCCC achieve their dream of a college education.
Nearly 80% of HCCC students rely on financial assistance for their education and most have unmet financial needs. The generosity of our supporters helps the Foundation raise $2 million in funds annually to provide our students with the best chance to achieve their potential.
