CMC Foundation's Fall Event Features Assemblyman Paul Cook

    September 22, 2008


    JOSHUA TREE, CA – The Copper Mountain College Foundation will hold its annual Fall Fundraising Dinner Saturday evening, October 25th at the Hi-Desert Medical Center’s Helen Gray Education Center in Joshua Tree.

    This year’s guest speakers are California Assemblyman Paul Cook, and Field Representative Tim Itnyre. The theme for this year’s event is “Breaking Ground for Our Future,” a tribute to the long-awaited Bell Center which begins construction in October, and a look to the future of the growing campus on the eve of its 25th anniversary.

    Mr. Cook and Mr. Itynre, both of whom have had long relationships with the College, will share their insights about CMC’s role in the community, and current issues of interest to the Morongo Basin.

    New to this year’s event is a pre-dinner, hosted reception from 5:00 to 6:00 pm where sponsors and community members can meet the guest speakers in a smaller, informal setting. The main event will begin at 6:00 pm with a no-host bar, and dinner will be served at 6:30 pm.

    Tickets for the dinner and hosted reception are $175, and dinner-only tickets are $100. $1,000 sponsorships include 4 tickets for the dinner and reception, $500 sponsorships include 2 tickets for the dinner and reception, and $250 sponsorships include program and website advertising.

    Proceeds from the event will benefit the mission of the Copper Mountain College Foundation to expand educational opportunities in the Morongo Basin. A portion of the proceeds of the no-host bar will benefit the Boys and Girls Club.
