Aspire 2023

A Celebration of Culinary and Creative Arts
February 25, 2023  •   5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Frederick Community College (FCC) Student Center

President Annesa Payne Cheek and the FCC Foundation Board of Directors cordially invite you to an evening of elegance with food, music, and friends to support FCC student scholarships. The event offers scrumptious food and imported wine stations including appetizers and desserts from the Hospitality, Culinary, and Tourism Institute students, a silent auction of local and student-painted wine boxes, and student musical performances. An evening of lasting memories you won’t want to miss!

The Aspire 2023 event will be held in the FCC Student Center with early admission at 5:00 p.m. for a private wine tasting with food or a cocktail reception for top sponsors. The main event follows with scrumptious food and wine pairing stations, a silent auction, top judged student art exhibit, and musical performances by exceptional student artists. It’s an evening of lasting memories. All proceeds from Aspire 2023 will benefit scholarships for students with financial need through the Frederick Community College Foundation.

Why Give?
Financial barriers shouldn’t prohibit students from having the college experience they dream of. With your generous gift, FCC students are able to maintain a challenging course load, spend more time focusing on school, and enjoying the involvement and camaraderie of a full campus experience.

Please consider making a life-changing gift. Your financial support can make a significant difference in the lives of hard-working FCC students, alleviating financial burdens and allowing them to focus on pursuing their dreams.
