The 2019 HCC Black History Scholarship Fundraiser


A world-class jazz guitarist, an unforgettable scholarship event


You are cordially invited to savor the sounds of legendary jazz guitarist Joe Carmouche - and help promising students at Houston Community College reach their higher-educational goals – at one of the most exciting events for Black History Month this February.

Join us at the 2019 HCC Black History Scholarship Fundraiser, 7 p.m. Saturday, February 23, 2019, at the Czech Center Museum Houston, 4920 San Jacinto St., Houston, TX 77004. Guests will enjoy sumptuous gourmet delights, a well-stocked cash bar, and participate in a magnificent silent auction with great gifts and adventures.

Since 2006, the HCC Black History Scholarship program has provided funds to support deserving students at Houston Community College. Many of this year’s scholarship recipients will be on hand to give a heartfelt thank you, and to describe how scholarship contributions have made tremendous differences in their lives.

This year, to celebrate the success of these students, fundraising guests also will listen to one of the best jazz musicians in the world.

Joe Carmouche has played with such musical greats at Kenny Burrell, Joe Sample, Ronnie Laws, Kirk Whalum and Arnett Cobb. He has recorded five jazz guitar CDs, and is a regular performer at Houston-area nightclubs, including his own venue: Legends Jazz Café. Carmouche has long been one of Houston’s most popular and in-demand performers.

A fundraising tradition

It’s a Houston fundraising tradition, and a Black History Month celebration benefitting exceptional African-American students at Houston Community College.

Since 2006, the HCC Black History Scholarship Gala has been a memorable and purposeful event in Houston. This year, the scholarship gala is evolving: It will feature both a notable speaker and a musical performance by a well-known artist to encourage greater sponsor underwriting and scholarship funding.

None of it will be possible, however, without the support from generous and visionary donors. We invite you and your business to become a sponsor of this outstanding annual fundraising event and see firsthand the impact your support has in the lives of deserving students.

Your financial contribution is tax deductible through the HCC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) entity since 1976. Your business and brand will be aligned to a worthy cause throughout the month of February and beyond. Best of all, you’ll provide a tuition-free, high-quality, first year of college to promising local students.

For Students. For History. For HCC.
