Jazz & Jeans Event

Description: 2014 Jazz & Jeans

A Single Fiber Does Not Make a Thread, Nor Does a Single Tree a Forest...

April 26, 2014 will forever be remember as "An Evening in the Forest" for guests who attended the Foundation's 4th Annual Jazz & Jeans dinner, dance and auction at Jefferson College-Hillsboro.

The spectacular event raised funds to support scholarships, emergency student loans and grants, textbooks, and other projects for the benefit of students attending Jefferson College. 

Festivities began at 6 p.m. and included a social hour, spectacular dinner, silent auction, dance demonstrations, and the sounds of the Jefferson College Jazz Band.  Description: jazz_jeans_01Auction items included exquisite hand carved wooden bowls, themed baskets containing sports tickets and memorabilia, beautiful china and crystal pieces, pampering spa supplies, children's toys and books, one-of-a-kind jewelry, an exclusive dinner party for 8 featuring indulgent culinary delights and fine wines from around the world, catered parties at home, desert of the month personal creations including delivery, sailboat excursions, exotic get-away packages, and much, much more!

Last year, the planning committee set a fundraising goal for the event of $50,000 to commemorate and celebrate Jefferson College's 50th Anniversary.  Not only was the goal met, it was exceeded, raising nearly $55,000 for Jefferson College and its students.  With the hard word and dedication of the Foundation's Board, staff and the event committee, the fundraising goal was exceeded once again in 2014, raising more than $64,000 to help students achieve the life-changing goal of receiving a higher education and the opportunity to create a better life for themselves, their families and OUR community.
