Culver-Stockton College is preparing for its annual giving event, 24 WILD Hours of Giving, to benefit student scholarships. This year’s event includes a dining day on Thursday, March 17, 2022, sponsored by alumni-owned restaurants Primo’s in Canton, Tiramisu in Quincy, and LaBinnah Bistro in Hannibal.
Culver-Stockton College alumni business owners have partnered with the College for the second year in a row to raise awareness among Culver-Stockton College alumni and the local community about the importance of the Student Scholarship Fund during this annual fundraising event. A portion of proceeds from orders placed for take-out or dine-in during lunch and dinner on March 17th will be donated to the Student Scholarship Fund at Culver-Stockton College. The Student Scholarship Fund provides direct financial support to more than 90% of C-SC students who depend on scholarships to help pay for their education. C-SC President Dr. Douglas B. Palmer invites the community to participate in the dining day on March 17th and shared, “This event, part of our 24 Hours of Giving, allows community members to enjoy a meal at a local restaurant while gathering together to provide scholarship support to Culver-Stockton students. We are grateful for the generosity of these alumni-owned restaurant partners who are providing a portion of the proceeds to C-SC and for the Wildcat supporters who will join us for a meal on March 17th.”
Primo’s in Canton, owned by alumni couple Jarrod ’00 and Brenna Leonard ’02 Phillips, and Tiramisu in Quincy, co-owned by Roberto Stellino and alumnus Ilija Cucuk ’03, will be open for lunch and dinner. Hannibal’s LaBinnah Bistro, owned by alumnus Arif Dagin ’10, will be available for dinner. This dining day event offers alumni and community members a unique opportunity to get involved, enjoy a meal together, and support students. Primo’s owner Jarrod Phillips will be participating for the second year in a row and shared, “We are proud to partner with Culver-Stockton to help provide students the same opportunity that Brenna and I were fortunate enough to have.” He added, “Any amount of help we can provide to the College and its students allows us to pay back a tiny bit of what we received during our time on “the Hill.”
The dining day event is one of many activities planned during the 2022 annual giving campaign, which runs from noon on Thursday, March 17th through Friday, March 18, 2022. The 24 WILD Hours of Giving will be housed primarily online through social media and the College’s giving platform, offering audiences an opportunity to understand better the impact the Student Scholarship Fund has on students at Culver-Stockton College.
