Planning Underway for GC Foundation Fund-Raising Event

Though winter still firmly grips Garrett County members of the Garrett College Foundation board of directors have spring on their minds. They are in the process of planning a fund-raiser to usher in the spring.

Slated for April 20th, it will be held at Chanteclaire Farms and offer a meal prepared by Chef Pablo of Firefly Farms using local organic ingredients. Proceeds will support the Garrett College Foundation Scholarship Fund.

In addition to the distinctive dinner, there will also be an auction in which those attending the gala will be able to bid on a variety of experiential events such as rafting, skiing, and boating. “The committee is very busy working on all the details for this major fundraiser and more information will be available in the coming weeks,” explained Jean Neff, president of the GC Foundation board of directors. “Right now we are urging people to mark their calendars and save the date what promises to be a very memorable and beneficial event,” she concluded.
