DelmarvaVoIP, who made a contribution to the Delaware Technical & Community College Educational Foundation – attended the DTCC fundraiser this past April.
Leaders from DelmarvaVoIP joined over 500 others at the balck-tie-optional affair at Gerogetown’s Owens Campus Development Council Fund’s Starry Starry Night Gala On April 30 to raise funds for textbooks, scholarships and tutoring services, student learning tools for classrooms, building expansion and the arts programming capacity of the campus theater.
The theme this year was Nashville Grand Ole Gala – and many enjoyed entertainment from Nashville country music star and Delaware native Chuck Wicks and other Music City and local performers throughout the evening.
DelmarvaVoIP is proud to sponsor this and other efforts that enrich our community.
Since its inception in 2000, the annual Starry, Starry Night Gala has become a huge success by raising funds to enhance the College’s ability to provide educational excellence.
State funding is not sufficient to meet critical needs of the instructional areas for many of the programs we offer. By donating to the Gala and helping to provide students with hands-on classroom environments and “real world” learning labs, you are helping to create a high quality, local work force that meets the demands of the current and future job market.
This year’s Gala will support our Automotive Technology program, as well as providing scholarships to students in a variety of majors.
In addition, the Owens Campus plays an integral role as a provider of cultural opportunities. Proceeds from the Gala will support arts programming in our theater and help us continue to enhance quality of life for our community.
This annual, sold-out event is by far the largest fundraiser we hold for our students and the Owens Campus, and we hope you will participate with your commitment of a donation.

Vice President and Campus Director
Starry, Starry Night Gala, the annual black-tie optional gala for the Jack F. Owens Campus in Georgetown, has been “the place to be” in Sussex County on the last Saturday in April since it began in 2001. This highly successful themed event for 500 guests features a reception, dinner, performance, art exhibit, cultural activities and specialty desserts and beverages. Guests have “traveled” to countries around the world, experienced life during the 1960s era and been wowed by nature’s marvels and man’s ingenuity.
The gala is a fundraiser for Delaware Tech’s Educational Foundation and has helped to provide funds for textbooks, scholarships and tutoring services, student learning tools for classrooms, building expansion and the arts programming capacity of the campus theater.
