The Central Community College Foundation and the Veterans and Military Resource Center will present the fourth annual Salute to Women Warriors banquet at 6 p.m. on March 16 at Babel’s Barn, 510 W. Old Military Road in Wood River.
The banquet is a public event, honoring past and present women of the U.S. military as a fundraiser for the Women Veterans Scholarship at CCC.

All proceeds will benefit the Women Veterans Scholarship in honor of Wilma Kellogg, a World War II army veteran.
A variety of donation and sponsorship opportunities for the banquet are available, including cash donations, services or supplies, silent auction items or gift certificates and hosting a group table. Donations may also be made to the Women Veterans Scholarship directly through the CCC Foundation. All donors will receive recognition at varying levels.
