FVCC Announces Last Call to Purchase 100th Anniversary Titanic Dinner Tickets

Tickets are nearly sold out for Flathead Valley Community College’s 100th Anniversary Titanic Dinner.  Proceeds from the dinner will support the campaign to complete the Rebecca Chaney Broussard Center for Nursing and Health Science.

This spring, Flathead Valley Community College will break ground on the building.  Following a generous $4 million gift from the Broussard family to honor the late Rebecca Chaney Broussard, the FVCC Foundation is inviting the community to help raise an additional $1 million to complete construction of the center.  To date, over $720,000 has been raised toward this goal thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations.  To share the excitement of this vital project and assist the Foundation in raising the remaining funds, the college’s culinary arts’ Chef’s Table program will present the 100th Anniversary Titanic Dinner on Friday, April 13 with all proceeds from the event supporting the campaign.

During this black tie or period attire affair, patrons are invited to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the R.M.S. Titanic’s maiden voyage with a seven-course meal inspired by the elegance and grandeur of the last meal experienced in the ship’s first-class dining saloon on April 14, 1912.  Dinner will feature consommé olga, poached salmon with mousseline sauce, filet mignon lili and chocolate painted éclairs.  Guests will enjoy Titanic-era décor and a live string ensemble from the Glacier Symphony & Chorale.  A captain’s champagne toast and two complimentary drink tickets will be included with dinner.  A no-host bar also will be available.

Tickets for the 100th Anniversary Titanic Dinner are $150 each.  Groups of 10 or more can make reservations by phone at a discounted rate of $125 per ticket.  Interested patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets to the event immediately as limited tickets remain.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.fvcc.edu/chefstable.html or by calling (406) 756-3632.  For more information on the building campaign, please contact FVCC Executive Director, Institutional Advancement Colleen Unterreiner at (406) 756-3914 or at colleenu@fvcc.edu.
