Olympic Club hosts Centralia College Foundation
McMenamin’s Olympic Club, the restored historic downtown Centralia pub and eatery, is continuing its "Centralia College Foundation Night" tradition on Thursday, March 10, from 4 p.m. until closing. The evening of food, drink, and entertainment will benefit the foundation scholarship program for deserving area students at the college.

The public is encouraged to share in the evening of entertainment and support student success.
The Olympic Club will donate half the proceeds of the evening sales, except gift certificates and retail items, to the foundation scholarship fund. The foundation will receive 50 percent of the revenue from dinners, micro brews and wine, games, a stay in any of the period hotel rooms, and nearly all other activities and entertainment available at the hospitality complex. Even the popular “dinner and a movie” feature will provide additional money for scholarships. The movie at 6 p.m. is TRON, a science fiction adventure set in a digital world that's unlike anything ever captured on the big screen.
At 9 p.m., the movie is The Delima, a comedy about two guys, friends since college - confirmed bachelor Ronny and happily married Nick who have been through thick and thin. Now partners in an auto design firm, the two pals are vying to land a dream project that would launch their company.
“We are grateful to have more businesses and organizations join us in our scholarship efforts,” said Centralia College president Dr. Jim Walton. “It’s especially satisfying when we can actually join in the fun of an event that benefits our students.”
