LCC Foundation to host annual Boots, Bling & Blessings on October 20


(Lamar, Colorado; October 8, 2018) Lamar Community College Foundation is making final preparations for its second annual Boots, Bling & Blessings celebration on Saturday, October 20, at 6:00pm in the LCC Equine Complex.

Raising $25,000 for the Foundation and LCC’s students, last year’s event proved to be both productive and thoroughly enjoyable. Foundation Board members and LCC staff connected with donors and community members who have made a significant difference to the College and LCC students in the last few years.  Community members, alums and donors are encouraged to attend and meet many of the LCC Foundation scholarship recipients.  It will be a relaxing opportunity to join other community members to have fun and celebrate.

The Foundation will also make several special presentations on behalf of the foundation and college. The Foundation is grateful to the generous sponsors who made Boots, Bling & Blessings possible, including:
