Freeport, Illinois — The Highland Community College Royal Scots will be bringing their popular “Jazz Cabaret” show to Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa in Galena for one night only, on Thursday, May 4, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. The show includes jazz performances by Highland students and a three-course dinner in Eagle Ridge’s picturesque ballroom.
Tickets for this fundraising event are $80 per person, and seating will be limited to create an intimate nightclub atmosphere. Call 815.599.3413 or go to highland.thankyou4caring.org to purchase tickets.
Between 2013 and 2016, special fundraising efforts made it possible for 18 Highland students, plus community members and chaperones, to travel to Germany and Austria for a vocal music and educational tour in May 2016.
The HCC Foundation is currently partnering with the HCC Music Department to make it possible for a new group of students to be able to have a similar enriching experience in the spring of 2018.
Generous underwriting by local businesses and individuals will help defray event costs and thus, increase net proceeds. Underwriting donors participating so far include: Apple River State Bank/First Community Bank of Galena; John and Margarete Cooke, Galena Gazette, and Jo-Carroll Energy.
