MACOMB, IL - - Western Illinois University's College of Arts and Sciences will host its Third Annual Scholarship Fund-Raising Dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16 in the University Union Grand Ballroom.
Last year's event raised more than $30,000 for scholarships across the college, and the college is poised to exceed that figure this year, according to Interim Dean Susan Martinelli-Fernandez.
Tickets for the event are $60 each, with $32 of each ticket going directly to the scholarship fund of the donor's choice. Participants will receive a charitable giving receipt for the donation portion of their ticket. Tables of eight are available for $480.
Anyone interested in participating should call the College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office, (309) 298-1828, or email JL-Dodd2@wiu.edu.
