Having fun raising support and awareness through Foundation Events
Our donor community is a diverse constituent base, much like our student body. We consider our reach much farther than Bladen County NC and our events are designed to touch a wide range of people in our broad community.
SEAFOOD & SUNSET is our largest event of the year and is generally held in October when the White Lake Sunsets are most spectacular. That combined with the finest fresh fried seafood and it guarantees to be a night to remember! Each year the event would not be possible without the support of our event sponsors and our event guests. We thank you and our students thank you for helping to make each year more spectacular. Our 2017 event sponsors below are gearing up for this year’s event and we hope that you will once again be a sponsor and if not that you will consider becoming one for the 2018 event. There is a link below that you can go online and sign up. Or you can call the foundation office at 910-879-5519 and we will be happy to take your pledge of sponsorship and send you an invoice for the level which you select.

Invitations will be sent out to all those who have attended in the past as well as new invitees this year.

THANK YOU for being there for US! ~ 2017-2018 BCC Ambassadors
ALL CAMPUS APPEAL
Our faculty and Staff go above and beyond for our students, in so many ways. Yearly there is an all campus appeal to enable them to give directly to the foundation. They are committed to helping to make it possible for the very students that they teach to further their goals and dreams….living out the college motto…..Student Centered + Future Focused! The appeal each year takes on a different flavor which lends itself to a bit of competition amongst the on-campus employees. If any faculty and staff member would like to make a one time payment online for the All Campus Appeal you can do that by clicking here . Be sure to remember to put All Campus Appeal in the additional comments section at the bottom of the page. If you wish the donation to go to a specific scholarship please make that designation appropriately. Thank you so much Faculty & Staff — You are truly supporting student success in every way!
Past Community Events and Looking To The Future
Bladen Community College presents “An Evening with Kathryn and Charlie”
Mezzo-soprano Kathryn Findlen and pianist Charlie Magnone returned to Bladen County in 2015 to again present a program of vocal and piano works from the American Songbook. Their upcoming concert will include selections from Cole Porter to Stephen Sondheim in addition to piano classics by Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms.
Enthusiasts for American repertoire and collaboration with the contemporary composers behind the unique works they perform, Findlen and Magnone’s “emotionally powerful performance” (Austin American Statesmen) of Donnacha Dennehy’s, That The Night Come, was nominated for Best Symphonic Performance and awarded Best Vocal performance by the Austin Critic’s Table Awards.
Performances were held in the sanctuary of the Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church with a reception following the performance. Both concerts were free.
The highlight of this event was on Friday afternoon, May 1st when Ms. Findlen and Mr. Magnone visited the Clarkton School of Discovery to do a school informance and presentation. A performance class was given to a small select group of music students from CSD. The repertoire styles that were included were Classical, Musical Theater and Pop (original or cover.) The performance class culminated with a short music program for the entire school with pieces performed by both Findlen/Magnone and select students. The students, faculty, and staff were the special guests at the evening performance.
Collaborative of Bladen Community College, Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church, and the Arts Council of Bladen County.
The college supports the Arts Council of Bladen County and any and all efforts community wide in bringing more offerings like this, as well as, establishing a “Distinguised Speakers” series here at the college in the very near future. Bladen County itself is the home to a variety of musicians and artists who are invited at any time to perform on the campus.
