Valentini’s Turning Pink

HELP US CELEBRATE 8 YEARS OF VALENTINI’S TURNING PINK

FRIDAY OCT 29

 

October 2013 we started our event in honor of our sister in law

Carol Marturano who is a breast cancer survivor.

Every year since we have donated our proceeds to the Angel Fund to help provide financial assistance to other families with any type of cancer on the Iron Range. To date we have raised over $40,000!

 

We are requesting donations to help raise money for this amazing cause.  Ex: Monetary, gift cards, baskets and/or raffle items

Hibbing Community College Building Naming Celebration

Join Hibbing Community College (HCC) on Friday, October 8th, 2021, in celebrating new names for buildings and common spaces.

The renaming process began with HCC seeking nominations from community members, students, faculty, alumni, and staff. Historically, campus buildings have been labelled by letter; however, with HCC having completed a major renovation project, the college recognized an opportunity to assign more meaningful names to its buildings and common spaces. As nominations were received, an HCC committee consisting of HCC faculty, staff, administrations, students, alumni, and community members made the final naming recommendations, which were approved by the chancellor of the Minnesota State system.

New memorable names will now offer clarity for students and visitors while also honoring HCC’s century-long history of providing affordable higher education for the Iron Range.

The Building Naming Celebration will take place on Friday October 8th, 2021, and will honor individuals and groups that have made a lasting impact on the Hibbing Community College. The public is welcome to attend.

Schedule of Events

4:00 p.m.  Welcome & Presentation

5:00 p.m.  Ribbon Cutting & Social Hour

6:30 p.m.  Athletics Recognition & Hall of Fame Inductees
