The State Fair Community College Foundation Board of Directors invites you to Saturday Night Fever – a special event to help fund construction of SFCC’s technical education facility.

The Details

Stayin’ Alive, Boogie Shoes, Jive Talkin’. You know the tunes, so break out your boogie shoes and your best 1970s dress for Saturday Night Fever! The fun starts at 6 p.m. March 25 in the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center on the Sedalia campus. Reservations are due by March 10!

The Evening

  • Appetizers & Dinner – During the cocktail hour three appetizers will be served. Dinner will feature salad, beef and pork tenderloin, marinated veggies, broccoli with cheese and crispy Pablo, and roasted potatoes with rosemary.
  • Dessert Dash – You’ve heard of working for your dinner, but have you heard of dashing for your dessert?

Guests at each table enter their bids on cards that will be collected and totaled to create a combined table bid for a delightful donated dessert.

The table with the highest combined bid receives the first opportunity to select a dessert. Descending bids are then announced in quick succession, and table reps must dash to the desserts to claim their choice.

  • Auction – Check back for details and additional items!

Why We’re Raising Money

This event will benefit SFCC’s effort to improve and expand technical education programming and facilities. On April 4, the college is asking voters in its taxing district to approve a bond measure that would fund construction of a new technical education facility, new and enhanced programs to accommodate workforce demands and renovations to existing buildings.

If passed, bond measure funds will be dedicated to construction, renovation of existing facilities, and the purchase of capital technology and equipment. There are many other needs to support this project and expansion of technical education programs, and proceeds from this event will help pay for those needs. Learn more on the Building Strong Futures website.

What to Wear

If you grew up in or lived through the 1970s disco era, you know what we’re talking about! If not – think flair and flare (bell bottom pants, anyone?); slick, wide-collar dress shirts (bold gold or shiny satin with maybe just a little chest hair showing); leisure suits; dresses with flounce; platform shoes or high-cut boots; and accessories to make it all work! Of course, if this isn’t your style, dressy casual is just fine.
