More than $200,000 and counting has been raised for student scholarships through the 2023 Boots & Bats Gala. Hundreds attended the annual gala Saturday, April 29, at ACC Highland. The gala is presented in partnership with the Art Has Heart Foundation and ACC Foundation. All proceeds benefit student scholarships. 

Many attendees took home one-of-a-kind artwork from national, local, and student artists ranging from paintings and ceramics to jewelry and boots. ACC  designed and prepared a cocktail reception with specialty hors d’oeuvres. The event also featured live and silent auctions, live student music performances, and live art performances.
