MCC to host First-Ever Legends Event
“The intention is to use the event to spotlight and honor individuals who have made a significant impact on the college,” said MCC President Naomi DeWinter. “Our first honorees will be Helen and the late Stan Howe. For many years, the Howes have been tremendous supporters of the college, our students and faculty. They have contributed financially and, just as importantly, a great deal of their personal time and effort. We can’t begin to thank them enough for all they have done.”
DeWinter said a dedicated team of alumni and foundation volunteers have rolled up their sleeves to create a fun evening for all who attend.
Legends opens with a champagne welcome sponsored by HyVee and features a Grand Salon of some of the area’s top chefs. The chefs will each be preparing some of their finest signature dishes. It will also include MCC students demonstrating the skills they have acquired studying in the college’s new Culinary Arts program.
Participating restaurants currently include (with others possibly to be added):
- Geneva Golf & Country Club
- Guadalajara Restaurant
- Rendezvous Banquet Facility & Catering
- Tantra Thai
- Maxwell's Restaurant (Merrill Hotel)
- Yacky Shack
Musical entertainment will be provided by the six harpists who make up the local group, Harper’s Delight. In addition there will be a program honoring the Howes and both live and silent auctions.
Funds raised will be used toward the addition of virtual reality equipment in the science department and remodeling upgrades in the agriculture program classrooms.
