Spring Fling 2020 Auction Items

Spring Fling logo masked Moved Online to Thursday June 18 7 PM

Spring Fling Live! raised over $42,000 in support of BRCC students and programs!

On behalf of the Blue Ridge Community College Educational Foundation, we offer a giant “THANK YOU” to everyone who participated in and supported BRCC Spring Fling Live! on Thursday, June 18, 2020.

While we were not able to be together in person this year as we have for the past 24 years, the connection with our community remained as strong as ever. We missed the clinking glasses and delicious food and conversations, but were so happy to see our friends virtually, and felt the support of our community through your comments, bidding, and floating emojis of encouragement. We felt united despite time and distance.

This event was possible with the support of our generous sponsors, as well as Bowman Auctions and Appeal Productions.  Our Special Events and Alumni Relations Committee – most especially Tassie Pippert and Andy Vanhook – demonstrated creativity, vision and execution that truly made this event a reality.

We look forward to seeing you in person soon, and wish you, your families and your friends, health and happiness in the months to come.  

With sincere gratitude,

The BRCC Educational Foundation Team
