“A Night of Picasso” is the theme for the Colby Community College Endowment Foundation Scholarship Benefit Auction scheduled for Saturday, April 14, at the City Limits Convention Center in Colby.

Proceeds from the auction fund endowed scholarships that assist students pursuing their goals at CCC.

Within the last three years, gifts at the auction allowed the college to purchase much-needed buses, renovations to the fitness lab, and offset the cost of current renovations to student housing.

According to Foundation Executive Director Jennifer Schoenfeld, seats are filling quickly.

“So far we have sold more than half the tickets,” she said.

A unique item this year is a raffle for a five-day, four-night vacation.

“The winning ticket holder has a choice of going to Chicago, New York City, Taos, Albuquerque or Santa Fe, New Mexico,” Schoenfeld said. “The package also includes airfare and amenities.”

The doors will open at 4:45 p.m. with dinner served at approximately 5:30 p.m. The live auction will begin at 7:00.

Tickets are $40 each or $300 for a table of eight. For more information or to purchase a ticket, contact Schoenfeld at 460-4684.
