Sponsors for scholarship event needed to change lives

Scholarships change lives for the better by helping to keep higher education more affordable for students, including students at Anoka-Ramsey Community College Cambridge Campus.

December 13, 2013

Scholarships change lives for the better by helping to keep higher education more affordable for students, including students at Anoka-Ramsey Community College Cambridge Campus.

Cambridge resident Katrina Anderson’s life was changed by her scholarship. Anderson was taught she could not overcome her beginnings, such as a low-income household with no family history of higher education.  After years of menial jobs, Anderson decided to try something different. She started classes at Anoka-Ramsey Community College, and was able to afford her program in Business thanks to a scholarship from the Cambridge Campus Foundation.

Every January the foundation hosts Scholardazzle, a gala to raise money for scholarships to help students, such as Anderson, afford higher education.

This year’s sponsorships, a key aspect in generating scholarship funds from the event, have begun to arrive.

According to Michael Wall, Interim Foundation Executive Director, seven local businesses and families have already committed to sponsoring at the Diamond ($1000) level, and the Cambridge Wal-Mart will donate $1,500.

“Not only is this an impressive and heartwarming beginning to the Scholardazzle scholarship fundraising effort, but it is also a wonderful display of the community’s value of education,” said Wall.

The other initial Diamond-level sponsors include:  Juanita and Chuck Peterson, John and Bonnie Schlagel, Cambridge Medical Center, Debby and Tom Molano, Presbyterian Homes, Ray and MarieAnn Magnuson and Anoka-Ramsey Community College.

“We give because we think it is the right thing to do,” said event sponsor Bonnie Schlagel when asked why she and her husband chose to support Scholardazzle and local college scholarships.

The 2014 Scholardazzle event is set for Friday, Jan. 31 at Spectacular Events in Isanti. The evening includes dinner, live music, games, live, silent, and cake auctions, and the chance to win table service and champagne from the foundation’s board of directors.  Tickets are $55 or two for $100.

For more information about becoming a sponsor or purchasing tickets to the event, visit AnokaRamsey.edu, or call 763-433-1968.
