MODESTO — The Modesto Junior College Foundation will offer “A Hair Raising Good Time” at this year’s Summer Sonata Thursday, July 19 at the Gallo Center for the Arts in downtown Modesto.

The elegant evening will feature food catered by O’Brien’s Market, a selection of fine wines and a touch of “Hairspray” entertainment.

The event begins with a reception and silent auction at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m.  After dinner there will be a live auction and a program in the Foster Family Theatre featuring MJC students performing a medley from the musical “Hairspray.”

The cost to attend is $150 per person and table sponsorships are available. Event proceeds benefit college programs, campus projects and student scholarships.

The Summer Sonata is the premier fundraiser for the Foundation and since its inception has provided well over $1 million for MJC student scholarships, program grants, equipment and educational activities not provided by the state. A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in 1968, the Foundation exists to generate financial support for and to increase community awareness of the students, programs, and activities of MJC.

To donate or for sponsorship opportunities, please contact George Boodrookas, Foundation Executive Director, at (209) 575-6714 or george@mjc.edu.  To purchase individual Sonata tickets call the MJC Foundation Office at (209) 575-6619.
