RCCFF Annual Banquet to be held May 24th at the RC Opera House

April 30, 2019


The Red Cloud Community Foundation Fund (RCCFF) invites you to join them in celebrating 24 years of giving back to the community and to learn about current community development projects and fundraising efforts. Learn more about progress on the Hotel Garber project, plans to develop a youth version of the committee, and help RCCFF celebrate scholarship winners and donors, particularly those who gave to the successful Rural Development Philanthropy campaign.

Adam Morfeld, the Executive Director & Founder of Civic Nebraska, will be the featured speaker. Civic Nebraska, “creates a more modern, robust democracy for all Nebraskans via youth civic leadership, civic health programs, and voting rights initiatives.” Morfeld will talk about why creating a culture of giving in a community is critical, among other topics.   

A social hour with hors d'oeurves and drinks will begin at 5:30pm in the Opera House's Art Gallery, and the Dinner & Program will begin at 6:30pm in the Auditorium. Dinner will be served by Fat Fox's and a cash bar will be available.
