Holiday Open House 2010

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Foundation's Holiday Open House on December 1, 2010. We host this event because want all of our donors to feel connected to our mission and have opportunities to come together with us. This year's Open House, held at LCC's West Campus, went over great! It was so exciting to see our family of donors and LCC employees come together while enjoying some great food and entertainment. It reminds us of how many amazing people share the same mission of supporting LCC students through scholarship.

Not only was there great food and entertainment, but there was a fabulous silent auction. Guess what?! All of the items were sold and proceeds go into our General Scholarship Fund to provide more money for students. This was our second silent auction at our Holiday Open House and we hope that you enjoyed it as much as us. There were so many great things to bid on! Many of the items highlighted skills and talents found at Lansing Community College including but not limited to: Introductory Flight Lessons, Ride-Alongs with our Truck Driver Training and LCC Police, and Interior and Landscape Design prizes. Some other popular pieces were handcrafted items such as Hand-Turned Wooden Bowls, a Fishing Lure, and a Wire-Beaded Hostess Set. There were also several autographed items by sports figures and coaches, plus so much more! Watch for our auction next year, as it is sure to have more exciting items.

We were also able to highlight the talents of a member of our Music Faculty who greeted guests with some beautiful holiday music. We could hear her voice and the accompanying piano upstairs at the party too, and it helped set the festive mood. In another area were highlighted the musical stylings of Four by Eight, a new band comprised of members of Three Men and a Tenor and J & J Sounds by playing the promotional video from their first ever show. Did you like their music? Their upbeat attitudes, incredible voices, and remarkable instrumentation combines for a extraordinary show. Interested in checking them out? You can purchase tickets for their Holiday Concert at Dart Auditorium, December 18 at 7pm at
