At the September 15 international wine sampling and silent auction the venue, the libations, the scrumptious treats and silent auction items are donated.  So, 100% of every dollar you give for tickets, sponsorships and auction items goes to support learning!

it’s official – valencia is smoke free!


Monday, August 27, 2012 not only marked the start of fall classes, but it was also the day that Valencia officially implemented the smoke-free campus policy. In taking this step, Valencia joins more than 580 college and university campuses around the country in providing for healthier academic environments.

In partnership with the Quit Smoking Now program, Valencia will provide free on-campus tobacco treatment programs for students, employees and members of the community who wish to quit smoking. Curriculum for the program is developed by ex-smokers for those who want to become ex-smokers themselves. The five week program usually includes six sessions.To register today for free, call 1-877-848-6696.
