Hundreds turn out to honor Speedway chief and support college during Foundation’s annual gala

The Daytona State College Foundation’s annual gala honoring International Speedway Corporation CEO Lesa France Kennedy on Thursday, Sept. 19, was fabulous soirée that helped raise thousands of dollars for student scholarships and college growth initiatives. The nearly 350 people who attended the sellout affair, among the area’s premier charity events, were treated to a festive French theme that featured delicious hors d’oeuvres and exquisite French haute cuisine paired with wine par excellence. Entrée selections were carefully prepared by Daytona State culinary students under the guidance of their award-winning instructor and master chef, Costa Magoulas. The evening also included live and silent auctions, featuring a variety of quality items and services donated by the local community, such as fine jewelry and vacation packages. Daytona State President Carol W. Eaton lauded Kennedy’s commitment to the community, particularly her contributions to students in providing internships at the Speedway and supporting the Foundation’s scholarship fund. The Foundation estimates the event helped raise nearly $100,000.
