President's Circle Reception - May & June

The President's Circle Reception is Lane Community College Foundation's most prestigious recognition event. Our President's Circle members come together to be recognized for their excellence in giving in support of the college. They have the opportunity to hear a student scholarship speaker and meet student scholarship ambassadors. This reception is generally held at The Eugene Country Club in May of each year.

The Renaissance Room is a fun event dedicated to showcasing the Culinary & Hospitality Management Program. President's Circle members come to Lane's main campus for student prepared food stations showcasing a variety of carefully planned and prepared foods from all over the world. Guests have a chance to dine in the Renaissance Room, tour the kitchens, and vote for their favorite TOP CHEF student team! This event is generally held in June of each year and has limited ticket availability.

Personal invitations are mailed to community members who support the Lane Community College Foundation with annual gifts of $1,000 or more.
