Some Enchanted Evening
Some Enchanted EveningSM was held Saturday, November 14, 2015, at the Overland Park Marriott Hotel. The black-tie event benefits scholarships and featured an elegant five-course gourmet dinner served with fine wines, a social hour, entertainment arranged and performed specially for the evening, and dancing until midnight.

The JCCC Foundation has helped thousands of students pursue their dream of a college education. Students with exceptional needs, such as single parents and displaced workers, and talented students in all areas of study benefit from Foundation scholarships. More than $6 million has been raised over the past 29 years for the student scholarship program through Some Enchanted EveningSM.
The highlight of the evening was presenting the Johnson Countian of the Year honor to Mary Davidson Cohen.
"Mary Davidson Cohen has been a supportive friend of the Johnson County community in general and of Johnson County Community College in particular," said Joe Sopcich, JCCC president. "Her civic activities and her lifelong dedication to education, history and the arts have been an example to us all. We look forward to honoring her in November as the Johnson Countian of the Year."
