CFHoCo Annual Dinner & Celebration of Philanthropy Set for December 1

The Community Foundation of Howard County’s Annual Dinner & Celebration of Philanthropy presented by The Howard Hughes Corporation will take place on Thursday, December 1 at the Ten Oaks Ballroom in Clarksville, Maryland. For the first time in years, we will gather in person for a joyous evening of food, fellowship and philanthropy.

The evening starts with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., followed by a seated dinner and program highlighted by awarding the foundation’s Philanthropist of the Year awards. Please join us in honoring Dr. Lillian Bauder and M&T Bank as our individual and corporate recipients.

In addition to honoring the Philanthropists of the Year, the foundation will present the Leadership Council Award to an up and coming nonprofit leader and the Casey & Pebble Willis “Making a Difference” Award, which recognizes a nonprofit doing great work in our community. Dr. Daria Willis, the newly installed president at Howard Community College, will give a keynote address on her vision for HCC and the power of philanthropy.

Since some have asked, dress code for the event is business attire. The Ten Oaks Ballroom is located at 5000 Signal Bell Lane, near the intersection of Rtes. 32 and 108. Individual tickets for the dinner are $100 and can be purchased with the link below.


A sponsorship gives your business valuable exposure and visibility to an active, desirable demographic of movers and shakers across Howard County, while showing your support of local nonprofits.
