2016 Arts & Experience Dinner and Auction


Thank you for all your support!

Thanks to many generous donors, artists, sponsors, guests and volunteers, the Clatsop Community College Foundation raised $100,400 at its 2016 Arts & Experiences Dinner and Auction.

The event featured silent and live auctions showcasing works of art provided by over 50 local and regional artists as well as multiple experience packages up for bid. 

Part of this year's auction proceeds are dedicated to support needed equipment purchases for the college's paramedic, maritime, fire science, automotive and art programs. The funding goals were exceeded and all programs will receive their equipment requests.

Clatsop Community College is the North Coast's center of exploration and learning where leaders of today and tomorrow begin their careers, hone their skills, and develop the qualities needed to build the community we imagine.
