      WCTC Marketing Program 50th Anniversary Celebration

      The WCTC Marketing Program is turning 50 this year! A humble legacy of success exists throughout the Marketing, Fashion Marketing, Retail Management, and Food Marketing graduates.   WCTC Marketing Alumni represent a substantial group of managers, leaders, sales professionals and entrepreneurs within Southeastern Wisconsin.     Please join us for an evening celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the WCTC Marketing program. We will also be celebrating the Collegiate DECA organization, (formerly named the Wisconsin Marketing Management Association or Delta Epsilon Chi) along with the retired faculty who have always been champions of the program. This is an evening to reconnect and recognize one of the very first business programs created at WCTC.  We have dynamite door prizes, including a magnificent Kessler's Diamonds Splurge Gift Card a lucky attendee will win along with silent auction items.  You will need to be present to win the door prizes!  All event proceeds support the Marketing Program - WCTC Foundation Account.     We hope you can attend to show your support for WCTC and the Marketing Program.   If you cannot attend and would like to support the event you can donate through the registration link.

The Marketing Leadership Program absorbs costs for field trips, transportation, industry panels, program dinners, scholarships, and Collegiate DECA (Business Club) initiatives. This funding goes directly to the students and provides dynamic learning experiences outside of the classroom.     We are hosting this fundraising event at the Ingleside Hotel Ballroom in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. We expect 200-250 students and alumni for the event. Our ticket prices are $15.00 - $35.00 and will ask for additional donations. However, we know our efforts will go even farther with in-kind donations for silent auction items and having official event sponsors who want to honor a legacy and value hands-on, affordable education.       We are marketers and we will make sure everyone who attends knows exactly who provided support for our outstanding event! With you as a sponsor for this event, we are sure we can achieve our fundraising goal, have a dynamite 50th Anniversary Celebration, and continue to develop WCTC Marketing Program students. Can we count on an in-kind gift or donation?
