German American Apprenticeship & Education Foundation Fundraiser Gala

Workforce development is a cornerstone of GACC Midwest's mission. To mark 60 years of GACC Midwest, the creation of the German American Apprenticeship & Education Foundation was announced at the 2023 German American Business Awards. And while the Business Awards aren't going anywhere, stay tuned for announcements about their new format.

This year, we're introducing a new gala: one that furthers the foundation's goal of supporting the creation and expansion of high-quality apprenticeship pathways in the US. To support this cause, join us this October for an unforgettable evening under the stars at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago!

Celebrate the inaugural fundraiser gala in support of the German American Apprenticeship & Education Foundation with us. Strengthen the Foundation’s mission of fostering the growth of high-quality apprenticeship programs across the United States and ensuring equitable access to rewarding career pathways for all. This year, we're proud to present the gala with the theme "Shoot for the Stars," symbolizing our commitment to reaching new heights in sustainable workforce development in the US.

Immerse yourself in an evening of elegance and philanthropy as we come together to make a difference. Enjoy a three-course dinner and live entertainment, network with C-level executives and industry leaders in the German American business community, and participate in exciting live and silent auctions featuring exclusive items.
