The Iowa Lakes Community College Fine Arts Scholarship fundraising event was held Saturday the 29th of October at the Estherville Golf Course. The night was filled with great food and fellowship by all. The Event is an annual fundraiser staged by the Intuitional Advancement office to provide scholarships for ILCC students entering the fine arts regardless of where they are from.
The evening consisted of wine and beer tasting, appetizers and music. The turnout was robust and the evening was capped off by a live and silent auction. Larry and Vicki Howell did a superb job of calling and clerking the auction.
I would like to thank our sponsors of the event. Sponsors this year were Avera Holy Family Hospital of Estherville, Holiday Express Corp. of Estherville, Iowa Trust and Savings Bank of Emmetsburg, Kerber Companies of Emmetsburg, KOFAB of Algona, Forbe's Liquor Locker of Spirit Lake, NorthStar Bank and Agency of Estherville, Carol Ayers & Doug Stueven of Spirit Lake, and the Estherville Daily News and Spirit. Without their assistance we would never be able to raise the needed funds to support our Fine Arts Scholarship Program.
Thanks also to our many artists who made the auction portion of our evening a success. Many of the donors were alumni of Iowa Lakes and felt the need to give back to the current and future fine arts students the way they were given to when they attended ILCC. Their generosity will be felt by many students for years to come.
