Alumni, Friends Invited to Richmond Gatherings
Alumni and friends in Greater Richmond, Virginia, are invited to learn more about the exciting things taking place at Bluefield College during a 167 Club event for the college’s Capturing the Imagination campaign.
May 30, 2012
The 167 Club event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 13 at 6:00 p.m. at the Double Tree Hilton on 301 West Franklin Street in Richmond.
"At this moment, Bluefield College is making history," said alumnus and trustee Dr. David Bailey, who is hosting the event. "All alumni and friends should be part of it."
The college recently received a $1 million challenge grant to assist with raising funds for a new Campus and Community Wellness Center (CCWC). Once completed, the facility will provide health, wellness and recreation opportunities that have never existed on campus.
The 167 Club event is designed to share more information about the challenge grant and how alumni and friends can participate and ultimately help BC build its $14 million Campus and Community Wellness Center.

"If you cannot attend the event, I really hope and pray you will consider supporting this important endeavor for the college," said Dr. Bailey. "Each gift makes a difference."
