SCC Great Tastes Fundraiser Returns Friday, November 5


The annual Southeastern Community College Foundation (SCCF) Great Tastes event is scheduled for Friday, November 5, at the PZAZZ! Entertainment Complex in Burlington. The benefit begins at 6 p.m. with the live auction starting at 7:30 p.m. 

Guests will enjoy a wide variety of wines, beer, ales, and spirits. A broad array of appetizers and desserts will be served throughout the night.

Executive Director for Institutional Advancement Val Giannetino appreciates the support that the community offers to students each year, even when the event was moved online in 2020.

“Generous donors made it possible for us to have a successful online fundraiser in 2020.” She adds, “This year we are excited to be back in person at the Pzazz Event Center. We look forward to hosting a great event and raise funds for our students.” 

Net proceeds support SCC Foundation Board Scholarships, Foundation expenses, instructional program mini-grants, and facilities improvements.

Charity auctioneers from Fraise Auction & Realty Company will auction off items donated by employees, alumni, and friends of SCC. Items include gourmet dinners, boat rides, hand-made jewelry, home improvement services, event tickets, and many other specialty items.

Individual tickets are $50 each in advance or $60 at the door. A few sponsor tables for eight are still available for $500.

Attendees may also purchase tickets directly from the SCC Foundation.
