Highland Community College Foundation's "Woodstock" fundraiser to offer plenty of food and music
7/14/2015

The Highland Community College Foundation's Events and Auction Committee recently released the menu for Shindig V - "Woodstock," to be held August 15 in Freeport.

Jim Berberet, Executive Director of the Foundation, said that Troy and Donna Lessman, of Shannon, will be preparing a wide array of foods for Shindig attendees.

A few items from the buffet include crab cake bites with artichoke tartar sauce, drunken weenies, ribs, and pork tenderloin sliders with BBQ and mango salsa on the side.

More healthy fare includes mushrooms (bacon wrapped and stuffed); skewers with watermelon, fresh mozzarella, prosciutto and mint (drizzled with balsamic vinegar and sprinkled with fresh ground black pepper), and assorted cheeses, dips and veggies.

Desserts include tie-dyed cupcakes, lemon strawberry dessert, "hash brownie" selection and much more.

Shindig V - "Woodstock" will be held at Woody Burt's South Park Farm, south of Krape Park, in Freeport. Attendees, who hopefully will dress in their best 1969 attire, will experience a grand time, as well as fitting music and other treats, games and activities. Woodstock attire ranges from beads, headbands, neck scarves, and sunglasses to blankets, fringe and cutoffs and jeans.

The HCC Foundation will offer its very popular and competitive live and silent auctions.

Shindig V "Woodstock" begins at 5:00 p.m. with a silent auction. Live auction will begin at 7:00 p.m. with auctioneer Matt Hart of Sycamore.

Tickets are $50 per person and may be purchased by contacting the HCC Foundation at 815.599.3413 or online at highland.thankyou4caring.org. Seating will be limited.

Sponsors to date include Big Radio (platinum); Berner Food and Beverage, Helm Group, State Bank (gold); Union Savings Bank (silver); Forreston State Bank, and Olivet Nazarene University (bronze).

All sponsors and major donated auction items will receive special mention in advanced publicity, event-night signage and the auction program. Several levels of sponsorship are available, and cash contributions are welcomed. For more information, contact the HCC Foundation at 815.599.3406.

Proceeds from the event will benefit HCC Foundation's "Growing for tomorrow...Changing lives today" campaign that supports the Ray and Betty Stamm Health Science Nursing Wing and Nursing and Allied Health programs, as well as the Wind Turbine Technology facility, additional occupational training and educational programs, and scholarships for students.
