If you weren’t at the Starry Night Gala   last Friday you truly missed a special night.  Thanks to the Starry Night Gala committee, guests enjoyed sumptuous food, a silent auction, lively entertainment, and of course each other’s company during this holiday season. 

The Starry Night Committee which is part of the Foundation Board includes multiple businesspeople and citizens who all are advocates of the colleges’ mission.   This year the committee really out did themselves. Catering from Johannsons, which included passed cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and anything from pasta to lamb was terrific.  Businesses and individuals donated a diverse group of items for the silent auction ranging from upscale scotch tastings, Ravens tickets, to tool box sets. 

As the silent auction closed, guests were escorted to the Scott Center, where “The Hit Men” were about to put on a brilliant performance. Throughout the show nostalgia filled the center; as the band played 60’s 70’s and 80’s hits, the members of the audience erupted into dancing.  I can now say, I danced with Dr. Faye Pappalardo. Thank you for the dance!

The Community College Foundation advocates on students behalf by providing grants, academic aid, and raising money for college improvement.  We at Crawford Yingling Insurance are happy to support the foundation and enjoyed the Starry Night Gala immensely
