An Oregon Coast Community College Foundation benefit dinner is set for 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7, at the Sylvia Beach Hotelís Tables of Content Restaurant in Newport. The dinner will be complemented by light classical arrangements on guitar and piano.

The event will raise funds for the OCCC Tutoring Center and GED testing fee. The tutoring center is funded through a grant from Trust Management Services as well as two federal grants. Because of this funding, as well as the funding from two previous dinners, the center has increased student opportunities for success by expanding to include all OCCC students. More than 150 hours of academic tutoring was provided during the 2012 fall term.
