2014 Benefit Dinner


7th Annual Benefit Dinner & Silent Auction Announced
Revamped Event adds Concert to Planned Activities!

Central Baptist College is pleased to announce the seventh annual Benefit Dinner & Silent Auction to be held on Tuesday, March 4, 2014. The event has been revamped so those who have attended every year will experience something completely different! However, this will also be a great year to attend for the first time! Proceeds from this year’s event will go towards sound equipment, lighting equipment, and décor upgrades in the Burgess Auditorium.  

The night will begin with a Silent Auction to be held in the Story Library. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and guests will be treated to an hors d’oeuvre dinner and made to order specialty drinks prepared by CBC Dining Services and executive chef Jill McCollum. The meal will be served “station style” so guests can experience the ambiance of the newly opened Story Library on a self-guided tour while enjoying great food and a vast array of silent auction items.  

When the Silent Auction ends at 6:30 p.m., guests will move to the Burgess Auditorium in the Harold E. Cooper Educational Complex to enjoy a benefit concert by inspirational musician Ken Medema. Event attendees will enjoy reserved seating.

Individual tickets are $50 and sponsorships range from $500 to $5,000. Tickets and sponsorships can be purchase online at www.cbc.edu/benefitdinner.  For more information on donating auction items and purchasing tickets, please contact Jessica Faulkner at either jfaulkner@cbc.edu or at (501) 205-8800.  Sponsorship forms and payment must be received at CBC prior to February 25, 2014.
