The Great Hall of Carroll Community College will come alive with music, comedy and the spirit of Las Vegas on Dec. 11, as the Carroll Community College Foundation hosts "The Rat Pack is Back."

The show pays tribute to Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Dean Martin -- the foursome that comprised Las Vegas strip's hottest musical and comedic quartet of the 1960s.

"The Rat Pack" was written and produced by Sandy Hackett, son of comedian Buddy Hackett, and will be the main attraction of the CCC Foundation's Starry Night extravaganza, a fundraiser for scholarships, financial aid and other educational enhancements for the college.

Josh Kohn, chairman of the Starry Night event committee and proprietor of Kohn Creative, said Starry Night has set high standards in the past two years.

"We've gotten feedback from people that Starry Night is really one of the best events of the season," Kohn said. "Once people come, they get hooked.

In 2007, Starry Night hosted a performance by the Moscow Symphony. The entertainment in 2006 was Broadway and Hollywood film composer Marvin Hamlisch.

Steve Wantz, executive director of the CCC Foundation, said the foundation's work is for a great cause.

"People who are involved in and support the foundation and come to Starry Night don't just get involved because of the great events we put on," Wantz said. "They get involved because it's about raising money to help others learn throughout their lifetimes."

Along with the Las Vegas-style revue, Starry Night will include a silent auction where patrons can bid on a men's suit from English American, a year's supply of produce and airfare and two nights' lodging at Las Vegas' Excaliber Hotel.

Other auction items include jewelry and art, an overnight stay at Antrim 1844 and a guest deejay spot on WTTR Radio.
