The Bunker Hill Community College Foundation 2018 Gala

The 2018 Bunker Hill Community College Foundation gala was held on Thursday, April 26, 2018.  The BHCC Gymnasium sported a spring theme as our students burst forth in music, food, service and scholarship.  The graduating students in the Culinary Arts and Hospitality program prepared and served the food while Performing Arts students presented an instrumental and vocal program specifically prepared for the Gala.  The featured stars of the evening were the nine Foundation Gala Scholars in attendance, four of whom were interviewed on center stage by Kirk Carapezza, WGBH Correspondent.
