(Bluefield)—The annual Bluefield State College "Blue & Gold Extravaganza" on Friday, April 19, 2013 will bring together residents from the local and College community for a night of spirited fun and generous giving. It begins at 7 p.m. at Fincastle On The Mountain in Bluefield, VA.
The evening will feature an attractive variety of live and silent auction items. Guests will enjoy music, socializing, and hors d'oeuvres by Fincastle On The Mountain's Chef Rick.
Betty Carroll, Executive Director of the BSC Foundation, has directed organizational efforts for the event. "The auction proceeds will benefit the Bluefield State College Foundation's unrestricted annual fund," she observed. "This fund provides emergency loans for students, underwrites employees' participation in professional workshops, and addresses opportunities and challenges for BSC students throughout the year."
Bill Archer will again serve as auctioneer. "The auction is a great way to bring community members and BSC together for an evening of fun," Carroll continued. "At the same time, we are raising funds to help our students, staff and faculty."
Tickets purchased prior to the event cost $20 each (tickets at the door--$25), and entitle the holder to two beverages and an array of delicious offerings. "Fincastle On The Mountain" is a fantastic venue, and we look forward to a good time for all," Carroll noted.
Individuals and/or organizations interested in securing tickets are encouraged to contact Carroll (304-327-4031) or Lala Waters (304-327-4235). Tickets will also be available at the door.
