Save the Date: Garrett College Foundation Seventh Annual Spring Scholarship Benefit



Sean Beachy
Planning and preparations are well underway for the Garrett College Foundation’s upcoming spring scholarship event. The benefit will be held on Friday, April 7, 2017 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in The Lodge at Wisp Resort located in McHenry, Md. Although a fundraiser, the event is an opportunity to celebrate Garrett College students, their accomplishments, and the commitment and generosity of our donors and friends.

The evening’s theme, Starry Nights, will be French-inspired and will begin with a cocktail reception during which guests will enjoy classical French music played by Dr. Sean Beachy, pictured to the right, and his wife, Debbie, both residents of Garrett County. Wisp Chef, Jimmy Walker, will treat attendees to an assortment of unique French foods. A live auction benefiting student scholarships will follow dinner. Additionally, a few select works of the late Aza Stanton, a well-known artist of Garret County, Md, will be auctioned. The evening will come to a dramatic close with a breathtaking cirque du soleil-inspired aerial performance by Iron City Aerials of Pittsburgh, Pa.

Tickets for the event are $100 per person which includes a $50 charitable, tax-deductible gift. Corporate sponsorships are also available. For more information about corporate sponsorships or to request tickets, interested parties may contact the Garrett College Foundation Office at 301-387-3131.
