About Heartland Feud

Raising money for student scholarships takes center stage as teams face off in a fun rendition of Heartland Feud.

Game contestants (selected by random drawing) will guess the most popular answers to questions from a survey answered by over 100 scholarship recipients. All event attendees will have the opportunity to win prizes throughout the night.

Your attendance supports a growing student scholarship program and the Child Development Lab on Heartland’s main campus.

The event features:

  • An interactive Heartland Feud game
  • A silent auction with more than 30 unique baskets and a live auction
  • Delicious hors d'oeuvres from DoubleTree by Hilton and a cash bar
