Del Tech held its annual Starry Starry Night Gala April 30, a fundraiser for Delaware Tech’s Educational Foundation that has helped to provide funds for textbooks, scholarships and tutoring services, student learning tools for classrooms, building expansion and the arts programming capacity of the campus theater.


The sold out “Uniquely American” themed event, which raised $300,000, featured a reception, dinner, performance, art exhibit, cultural activities and specialty desserts and beverages.


Co-chairs for the Gala were Rob and Susan Rider, shown with their daughter Lauren Mills, left.
