Spring Fling Auction
Annually, the BRCC Educational Foundation hosts the Spring Fling Auction. Proceeds from a silent and live auction are used to support many Blue Ridge Community College projects not already funded by traditional sources. Due to the generosity of supporters, the Educational Foundation is able to provide student scholarships, needed technological enhancements, faculty grants, and program support for many worthwhile programs and initiatives such as Learning Can Be Fun, the BRCC Arboretum, the Women's Resource Center, and much more.
"Spring Fling is enjoyed by many people in our community..."Spring Fling is a worthwhile event that I look forward to each year. The fact that it raises a remarkable amount of much needed funds is excellent; however, you can also have a wonderful time experiencing the auctions, the large array of foods, the high quality and variety of donated items and mingling with all the distinguished supporters of BRCC." Donna Bothof, Weyers Cave, VA
"My contributions to the BRCC Spring Fling auction are minor compared to what I get out of being there and participating in the fun and festivities of the evening. "Spring Fling" has evolved from being merely a fundraising event; rather, it has become a celebration for the spirit of giving that prevails among us in the BRCC Community." Cathy Dent, Cathy Dent Designs, McGaheysville, VA
Thanks to the generosity of the BRCC community, the 2015 Spring Fling was another great success raising almost $72,000 to support student scholarships, faculty mini-grants and more. This event, held at the Robert E. Plecker Workforce Center on April 17, was sponsored by Diamond Sponsor Moseley Architects, and Platinum Sponsors Graves-Light Wealth Management of Wells Fargo Securities and W.M. Jordan Company. Attendees spent a festive evening bidding on more than 165 items donated by generous businesses and individuals. The BRCC Educational Foundation thanks all those involved in making this a successful community event.
Make plans now to join us for the next annual Spring Fling Auction to be held on April 22, 2016!
