time, talent and treasure

There are ways to give other than money.  A collection of musically talented faculty, staff, and friends–-fondly called The Rogue Scholars–have found a way to put their talent to work.  Contributing a love of rock-n-roll with their passion to help others, this band will perform at Valencia Osceola Campus Building 2 this Friday, July 24 at 7 PM. The modest $5 cover is designated for the Jane Dewey and Monty Bilyue Emergency Healthcare Services Scholarship benefiting Valencia Students. 

Another scholar, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, once said “Give what you have; to someone it may be better than you dare to think”.  To my new Rogue Scholar friends I say: thank you for what you have – both your time and your talents are appreciated!

  1. The Rogue Scholars are not only contributing to a great cause but also showing everyone that staff and students can work together to everyone’s benefit.

  2. Donna,
    I love the idea of The Rogue Scholars!
    Would they be interested in doing a gig at the Garden Theatre as a benefit fundraiser for the Theatre? We (Barbara and Bert) could host a wine reception on the roof following or prior to a concert in the Theatre. I would love to host something like that for friends of the Theatre in Winter Garden. VCC is such an inportant part of the West Orange Community. We have many students that have benefited from VCC programs and we have supported the Foundation Fundraising program for years through the WOJSL as well as Bert and my efforts. The Theatre is in need of money and this would be a fun way to show off the Theatre as well as the Rogue Scholars. Think about it. I think Geraldine would support this idea.
    Barbara
