Tickets are $50 per person ($30 of which is tax deductible) for all-you-can-eat and drink shrimp, chicken, homemade desserts, and beer. All proceeds benefit the LFCC Educational Foundation. The foundation provides financial support for a variety of needs at the college, including scholarships, academic programs, and facility upgrades.
The event features a silent auction, live entertainment with Chicago-based hypnotist Chris Jones, and guest speaker Susan McCorkindale. The mother of a current LFCC student, Mrs. McCorkindale has written two memoirs about her experiences moving from suburban New Jersey to rural Fauquier County. Her recent book, “500 Acres and No Place to Hide” was released in August.
