Thank you to everyone who made the annual Irvine Valley College Foundation Awards Dinner at the exclusive Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach a huge success. The donors, students, attendees, volunteers, as well as the evening’s medal winners, all made for a special night. This year IVC medal recipients were: William Woollett, Jr. (Irvine's first city manager, who served from 1972 to 1989), Irvine Police Chief David L. Maggard, Jr., and IVC Professor Colin McCaughey. Special guest was Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, OC Metro Business Magazine Publisher Steve Churm was the master of ceremonies, and IVC’s Director of Extended Education David Anderson was the evening’s auctioneer. Congratulations to the grand prize winner of the seven-night Hawaiian vacation, Carol Tagayun of AT&T. The evening raised $14,750 for scholarships and the live auction raised $5,600. Additional revenue from ticket sales and sponsorships will also be added to this total.
