Holiday Evening at Edison State has become The Edison Foundation’s most successful scholarship fundraiser to date, raising over $64,000 in 2021 alone. Thanks to this success, eighty-seven Edison State students from Darke, Miami, Shelby, Preble, Auglaize, Champaign, Clark, Logan, Mercer and Montgomery counties, have been offered over $120,000 in scholarships for the 2022–2023 academic year.
Once again, The Edison Foundation is partnering with Edison State Community College to offer a 100% scholarship to every 2022 high school graduate from our regional partner schools. This effort to respond to our community’s needs makes The Edison Foundation Scholarship program even more important. Proceeds from the Holiday Evening at Edison State event directly benefit recent high school graduates, as well as those returning to the classroom to start, change or advance their careers. Additionally, funds will be directed to The Foundation’s Student Emergency Assistance fund.
This annual event is known for outstanding entertainment and a festive atmosphere for supporters/donors—and has become a staple of the holiday season for many in the northern Miami Valley area. In previous years, the gala has featured a phenomenal array of appetizers, ice sculptures, holiday decorations and world-class entertainment, including performances by artists including Manhattan Transfer, Doc Severinsen, Matt Belsante, Harry Connick, Jr., The Texas Tenors, John Tesh and Simply Three.
The 2023 Holiday Evening at Edison State will be held on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, from 6:00 p.m.–8:30 p.m.—featuring three stages—providing simultaneous performances by artists from the Edison State region. The artists will deliver a unique holiday mix—providing a memorable experience. With each ticket purchased, patrons will have access to heavy hors d’oeuvres and beverages, as well a cash bar.
