Over 700 attendees came to experience the magic of “Cinderella”, performed by the Corpus Christi Ballet Company, at the A.C. Jones High School Auditorium on Saturday, May 4. The event was a fundraiser for the Coastal Bend College Foundation, and $20,500 was raised for student scholarships, innovative teaching grants, and other opportunities for Coastal Bend College students to experience success.
“I was amazed to see how many community members came out to experience this wonderful ballet and support the Coastal Bend College Foundation. The incredible support from a multitude of businesses, community organizations, and the Joe Barnhart Foundation made the event possible, but the audience made the event successful,” said Christy Lansford, Executive Director of the Coastal Bend College Foundation.
