Salute to Women Warriors Banquet Set for March 16 in Wood River

February 21, 2018

The Central Community College Foundation and the Veterans and Military Resource Center will hold the fourth annual Salute to Women Warriors banquet at 6 p.m. on March 16 at Babel’s Barn, 510 W. Old Military Road in Wood River.

The banquet is a public event, honoring past and present women of the U.S. military and to inspire and empower this traditionally underserved population. The evening will include a formal dinner, keynote speaker, silent auction and dance featuring the music of Whiskey Bent. All proceeds will benefit CCC's Women Veterans Scholarship in honor of Wilma Kellogg, a World War II army veteran.

“A great aspect to this event is that community members are welcome to attend and support our women warriors and the local community college at the same time,” said Travis Karr, CCC veterans and military services director.

A variety of donation and sponsorship opportunities for the banquet is available, including cash donations, services or supplies, silent auction items or gift certificates and hosting a group table. Donations may also be made to the Women Veterans Scholarship directly through the CCC Foundation. All donors will receive recognition at varying levels.

For more information on sponsorships or to purchase tickets, call 308-398-7811. Tickets may also be purchased at CCC's Veteran and Military Resource Centers for $25 each or on the Salute to Women Warriors Facebook page for $28. The address is
