Annual College Beyond Walls Luncheon

The 2024 CCA Foundation Annual Luncheon, presented by Civitas Resources, was held on Friday, April 19, 2024. This event honored the Community College of Aurora’s deep history in removing barriers for our students. Local elected officials, community members, CCA alumni and more were on hand to support the Foundation’s largest fundraising effort.

This year, our program highlighted not only our incredible students but our exciting new Center for STEM, Power Mechanics, and Applied Technologies. Thanks to the generosity of our community, over $330,000 was raised for the students of CCA.
