More than 400 people attended the Mt. San Jacinto College Foundation’s 7th annual Gala to raise funds that will support student scholarships and college programs.
The gala was a Gatsby-inspired event that highlighted students who represented various clubs, academic programs, athletics and student government. Guests were treated to a performance by Virgil Gibson, former lead singer of the world-famous Platters, and enjoyed an elegant dinner and a silent auction. The event was held on Feb. 7, 2015 at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula
