Newark, Delaware – March 17, 2020 – SIMM Associates is proud to continue its sponsorship of Delaware Technical Community College’s (DTCC) 16th annual Mardi Gras gala fundraising event. The event raised over $110,000 with SIMM participating as a Platinum sponsor. This event is DTCC’s largest and most public annual fundraising endeavor. Over the past 16 years, the event has raised more than $1.6 million, which is used to help students in need pay for tuition, books, and other essentials while attending DTCC. All monies raised are managed by the Delaware Technical Community College Educational Foundation. The non-profit, tax-exempt corporation was established in 1968 to raise funds to provide assistance to Delaware Tech students to bridge the gap between their needs and resources of the College.
“It’s an absolute honor to participate in this event each and every year” said Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer Jeff Simendinger. “The support that Del Tech’s Educational Foundation provides to students who without this support could not have the opportunity to enhance their lives through education and training is unmeasurable. I love the fact that SIMM continues to give back to our community by helping those in need.”
Delaware Technical Community College is the largest community college in the State of Delaware celebrating more than 50 years in business. The College is fully accredited by the Commission on Higher Education, Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
