Cellarbration! for Education, the BBCC Foundation’s annual scholarship fundraiser, reported gross receipts of $108,169 on May 16.
The amount broke last year’s record of $104,031 in gross receipts for the event that features a gourmet wine dinner, silent auction, and live auction. More than 200 people attended the event this year.
The evening ended with more than $15,000 in donations for the Intervention Scholarship Fund, which helps students in good standing cope with financial emergencies so they can stay in school.
Thank you to the generous donors and volunteers who help BBCC students with scholarship support, and congratulations to the BBCC Foundation staff and board of directors for staging such a successful event.
