A gourmet dinner and auction planned in September will help raise funds for scholarships to attend NIACC in Charles City and Mason City.

The North Iowa Area Community College Charles City Scholarship Committee will host “Celebrating the Journey; Creating the Future,” on Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Charles City Elks Lodge, 2111 Clark St.

The social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m. which will include live music and a silent auction. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m., with a live auction. The menu is appetizers of the era, mixed greens with champagne vinaigrette, chef’s cut of beef with a trio of sauces, vintage vegetables, au gratin potatoes and strawberry au parfait.

The Charles City Area Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to students attending North Iowa Area Community College either on the main campus or at the NIACC Charles City Center.

The scholarships are awarded to applicants at least 18 years old, living in Floyd County or within a 20-mile radius of Charles City, and enrolled part-time (up to 11 semester hours of college credit).

Since inception, more than 145 local students have benefited from this scholarship fund, which is made possible through the support of local businesses and community members.

Scholarship committee members involved in the planning are Rachel Adam, Heather Alsdorf, Lyndsay Clark, Sydney Franzen, Shawn Hyde, Josh Johnson, Jane Larson, Jennifer Loeckle, Tiffany Rottinghaus, Ted Smalley, Jayne Stowe and Ann Troge.

Proceeds from this 24th annual fundraising gourmet dinner benefit the Charles City Area Scholarship Fund. Tickets are $40 per person or $300 for a table of eight. Checks should be made payable to the NIACC Foundation. Tickets may be reserved by calling the NIACC Foundation at 888-466-4222, ext. 4386. Seating is limited.
