Having a Ball: Thousands Raised for Students

More than 300 people attended the 2014 Brookdale Foundation Scholarship Ball May 9 at the Eagle Oaks Golf and Country Club. The event netted $125,000, the largest amount in the event’s history, which will be used to fund scholarships and programs to support student access and opportunity.

This year’s ball honored Webster Trammell, Vice President, Development, Governmental and Community Relations, who is retiring in June after 36 years of service. Also honored was philanthropist Carol Stillwell, owner, president, and CEO of Stillwell-Hansen, Inc.

Brookdale alumna Candy Langan-Sattenspiel and Karen Escobedo, both members of the Brookdale Foundation Board of Trustees, served as co-chairs.

“The Scholarship Ball is vitally important to the Brookdale Foundation’s mission of engaging local individuals, businesses, and organizations in raising funds for scholarships and programs so that Brookdale students can achieve their dream of earning a college degree and building better futures for themselves, their families, and our community,” said Tim Zeiss, Executive Director, Foundation and Alumni Affairs.
