(Bluefield)—The annual Bluefield State College "Blue & Gold Extravaganza" on Friday, May 2, 2014 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 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 Extravaganza provides a great opportunity for Bluefield State College and the community to come together for a lively evening of auction bidding and wonderful food to raise funds to assist BSC students," she observed. "This year's event will feature vacation certificates during the live auction and a wide selection of gift baskets, art work, restaurant vouchers, and more during the silent auction. The auction will have something for everyone!"

Auction proceeds will benefit the BSC Foundation's unrestricted fund which provides assistance in addressing opportunities and challenges for BSC students. 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.
