CHICAGO HEIGHTS–(ENEWSPF)–February 19, 2016. Each year, hundreds of Prairie State College (PSC) students turn to the PSC Foundation for assistance paying for tuition, fees and textbooks. To provide financial assistance for PSC students, the PSC Foundation is hosting its annual scholarship fundraiser at 6 p.m., Saturday, March 5, at the Olympia Fields Country Club, located at 2800 Country Club Drive in Olympia Fields.
This year’s theme is ‘On the Boardwalk,’ with cocktails and dinner followed by entertainment and boardwalk games.
The annual special event is held to raise money through donations, dinner reservations, and a silent auction. All proceeds will benefit student scholarships at PSC. Special “Spotlight Scholars” will be recognized at the event during the annual “Stand Up for Scholarships” presentation.
“Each year, this annual event gives us the opportunity to better assist the students of Prairie State College,” said Foundation Executive Director Deborah Havighorst. “Scholarships have become even more important for our students this year, with Illinois’ budget continuing to remain in flux,” she added. “The students need the community’s support now, more than ever.”
There is still time to make reservations to attend the event. For more information, contact the PSC Foundation at 708-709-3631.
