A gathering of 220 people attended the ninth annual Central Maine Community College annual dinner, held recently at the Hilton Garden Inn of Auburn. The event was hosted by the College’s Education Foundation Board of Directors and included the presentation of awards to students and others for their achievements or contributions to the College.
Proceeds from the dinner, which are expected to approach $22,000, will benefit the Foundation’s scholarship fund. The mission of the CM Education Foundation is to provide financial support to CMCC and its students, to advocate on behalf of the college, and to nurture relationships with the community and constituencies. To date, the Foundation has raised more than one million dollars in scholarships for the College.
