(Victorville) Since 1961, one name has shined bright in the High Desert when it comes to continuing on into higher education. On Saturday, the community will come together to celebrate 50 years of Victor Valley College at VVC Gold.

VVC Gold is a gala event that aims to bring to life the accomplishments of the last 50 years, literally. “VVC Gold is a on-of-a-kind, knock-your-socks-off experience.  Guests will enjoy amazing food and entertainment like few things ever seen before in the high desert,” said Ginger Ontiveros, Executive Director of the Victor Valley College Foundation. The event boasts a little of everything, from gourmet food, to live entertainment, to a keepsake that embodies the memories the college has provided.

The event takes place Saturday, October 8th at the Victor Valley College Performing Arts Center at 6pm. Tickets are $50 a person, but the price of admission is well worth it. With a Vegas style buffet of entries ranging from shrimp, lobster, a build a slider station, a sushi station and more, the food provided is not your typical fare. A theatrical time capsule demonstrates the progress, cultures and memories of the last fifty years with musical and theatrical performances. Also, all ticket holders will receive a 24-page book highlighting the history of the college for its golden anniversary.

“Victor Valley College has touched every corner of our community for half a century.  Saturday is an opportunity for every corner of the community to come celebrate 50 years of life changing moments with their college.” Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by calling the VVC Foundation at (760) 245-4271 Ext. 2522 or by going online at Tickets for this event must be purchased in advance, so make sure to get yours early.
