Bi-annual gala to benefit Promise @ San Jac Scholarship

PASADENA, Texas – The San Jacinto College and LyondellBasell Hollywood Nights Gala presented by the Sinor Family will take place on Friday, May 17, 2024, at the LyondellBasell Center for Petrochemical, Energy, & Technology at San Jacinto College.

The black tie affair, hosted by the San Jacinto College Foundation, will celebrate students and their ability to reach for the stars and achieve their educational goals. All proceeds from the event are dedicated to the Promise @ San Jac Scholarship, an opportunity for any high school graduate who lives in the San Jacinto College taxing district to earn a certificate or associate degree debt free.

“We look forward to a glamorous night of celebrating our San Jac stars - our amazing students - while raising money for the Promise @ San Jac Scholarship,” said Dr. Brenda Hellyer, San Jacinto College Chancellor. “We thank LyondellBasell for their title sponsorship and continued support of the important work we are doing to provide a trained and skilled workforce, and sincerely appreciate the Sinor Family and each of our other sponsors for their commitment to the Promise Scholarship and San Jacinto College.”

The Hollywood Nights Gala will feature a cocktail and networking hour beginning at 6 p.m., where guests can interact with students, bid on silent auction items, take part in a gift card punch wall, and enjoy delicious appetizers and drinks. A three-course dinner will be served, followed by the presentation of the Legacy Award, and remarks from Promise Scholars and College leaders.

“We are excited to be the title sponsor for the Hollywood Nights Gala,” said Tracey Campbell, LyondellBasell Executive Vice President for Sustainability and Corporate Affairs. “Our partnership with San Jacinto College blends innovation and education to train tomorrow’s workforce. This collaboration supports our commitment to develop local talent and shape the next generation of leaders in our industry. We are honored to be part of celebrating San Jacinto College students and supporting the Promise Scholarship.”

The Promise Scholarship is open to all high school seniors who live in the San Jacinto College taxing district, regardless of GPA and family income. Students must meet deadlines for pledging and applying to San Jac, complete all financial aid documents by the stated deadline, and enroll at the College on time in order receive the scholarship. Students must also enroll full time for the fall semester after high school graduation, and complete their certificate or degree within three years. The Promise @ San Jac Scholarship covers the cost of tuition, books, and supplies so that students don’t have to worry about paying for college.
