Culver-Stockton’s Come Dine With Us fundraiser on Monday to help with student scholarships


CANTON, Mo. — Two Culver-Stockton College alumni business owners, along with the owners of a local coffee shop, have partnered with the college to participate in the annual Come Dine with Us fundraiser for student scholarships on Monday, March 18.

Participating businesses in the annual student scholarship fund fundraising event are Primo’s in Canton, Tiramisu in Quincy, and Hebrews XI Coffee in West Quincy. A portion of proceeds from orders placed during normal business hours will be donated to the scholarship fund.

The C-SC Student Scholarship Fund provides direct financial support to more than 90 percent of its students who depend on scholarships to help pay for their education.

In a press release, C-SC president Lauren B. Schellenberger said, “This event, part of our 24 Hours of Giving, allows alumni and community members to not only support the businesses but also to provide scholarship support to Culver-Stockton students. We are grateful for the generosity of these valuable partners who are providing a portion of the proceeds to C-SC and for the Wildcat supporters who will join us on March 18.”

Primo’s in Canton, owned by C-SC alumni Jarrod and Brenna Leonard Phillips, will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tiramisu in Quincy, owned by alumnus Ilija Cucuk and his wife, Suzana, will be open from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 to 9 p.m. Hebrews XI, co-owned by siblings Jordan and Shalise Steidinger, supporters of the college, will be open from 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Primo’s will be participating for the fourth year in a row.

“We are proud to partner with Culver-Stockton to help provide students the same opportunity that Brenna and I were fortunate enough to have,” Jarrod Phillips said. “Any amount of help we can provide to the college and its students allows us to pay back a tiny bit of what we received during our time on ‘the Hill.'”

The annual Day of Giving campaign runs from noon on Tuesday, March 19, through noon on Wednesday, March 20. The 24 Hours of Giving will be promoted primarily online through social media and the College’s giving platform, To learn more about the event, explore ways to give and hear stories of Wildcats, visit
