It’s an annual tradition: Columbia’s Annual Fundraising Dinner. Over 325 guests joined us this past Saturday to enjoy an incredible evening together and to invest in our mission to equip young adults for lives of discipleship, ministry, and leadership in service to the church and community.

  1. My wife and I, both grads of 1960 MBBI, enjoyed the evening, reconnecting with former school mates and friends. we support the work of the school as we are able.

    One thing that bothered me, was that during the time the panel was on stage talking about various aspects of school life, there was a constant barrage of background music, which made it difficult to understand all that was being said by the panel.

    I will have to think twice about attending future events of that nature.
