MMC to Host Grand Re-opening and Dedication of Charlie Bender Court

October 3, 2019

Mount Marty College will host the grand re-opening of Cimpl Arena and the dedication of Charlie Bender Court on Thursday, October 10 at 4:00 p.m. in Cimpl Arena. This event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

Thanks to the generosity of the Bender family, Cimpl Arena recently underwent a $1 million renovation which included new bleachers, updated flooring and entry, and a new court dedicated to the memory of Charlie Bender. Bender had a long relationship with Mount Marty, serving on the Board of Trustees from 1994-1999 and was a member of the Building and Grounds committee for many years.

The open house and program will celebrate this gift and the newly renovated facility.

Schedule as follows:

4:00 – 5:30 p.m. – Open house in Lancer Landing

5:00 – Program and ribbon cutting
