Inform & Inspire 10th Anniversary Event!

The DCC celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a fabulous Inform and Inspire gala!  On October 29th Guests enjoyed a fabulous evening of dinner, drinks, and live music featuring jazz and Gershwin at The Music Barn at Silo Hill in Phoenix, Maryland.

Featured speaker Goucher College President and world renown jazz pianist Jose Antonio Bowen inspired the large gathering of merry-maklers.  Also performing was our own Steve Scheinberg and his Jazz Trio, and celebrity Carolyn Black-Sotir who entertained with Gershwin favorites in a marvelous program!  Again this year Premium Raffle baskets with a value of $350-$500 offered an opportunity for additional fun.  The Silo Hill property offered a stunning view of the surrounding countryside and is the host of the noted Steinway Series of concerts featuring local and national guest artists.

Jam Making for Inform and Inspire!

Guests at this year’s Inform and Inspire were in for a treat! In keeping with the new venue for the evening—The Barn at Silo Hill – guests took home jars of scrumptious home-made jam. The inform and Inspire team turned 50 lbs of fresh strawberries and peaches straight from the fields into 400 half pint jars of jam. The jar labels read, “Jammin’ with the DCC,” and each guest left with both flavors.

Inform and Inspire 2015

The 2015 year’s Inform and Inspire event was a huge success!

More than 100 supporters gave generously as they mixed and mingled between two beautiful rooms at the Towson Golf and Country Club, munching on fabulous food and drink.  Steve Sheinberg’s Trio set the tone for the evening with an hour of mellow jazz.  Key note speaker Dr. Paul Head was inspiring.  Speakers Habitat for Humanity the Harford Center for the Arts genuinely thanked us for our participation in their charity organizations.

Our Chamber Choir provided an elegant sparkle that matched the mood of the evening, and our first-ever fund-raising raffle generated $1910 less expenses.  As a result of the evening and donations from our generous supporters, the Annual Campaign is on-target to reach our $17,500 goal, with 100% participation of the Board leading the way, moving the DCC forward on our quest for sustainability!
