The Indian Hills Culinary Cuisine for Women event was organized by women who have donated a minimum of $100 to the Indian Hills Foundation Women Supporting Women Scholarship. All of the women who donate to this scholarship fund will be invited to a special culinary event sponsored by local businesses and provided by the Indian Hills culinary department. 

Since this fundraising began in 2010, over $63,000, has been raised. We are now able to award three scholarships to non-traditional women for the 2017-2018 school year.

The Women Supporting Women fundraising event will be held on October 5, 2017 at 5:30 P.M. in the Main Dining Hall on Main Campus, in Ottumwa, IA.

Please mark your calendars for the 36th Annual Celebrity Night on Saturday, October 21, 2017. We are excited to announce that our featured Speaker will be Iowa Native, Chris Norton.

Chris Norton suffered a severe spinal cord injury playing college football and was told he would never walk again. He defeated all odds and walked across the stage of his college graduation which has been viewed over 300 million times across the world.

Chris calls us to focus on response, instead of situation…to be defined by attitude rather than circumstance. He shares a compelling story filled with laughs, tears and life changing moments that give audiences hope and a new perspective. He demonstrates how attitude, effort and purpose can navigate the most challenging obstacles.

Chris calls us to recognize the great power within us all.

All proceeds go towards IHCC Student Scholarships.
