The West Virginia Junior College Student Government wanted to give something back to its students while benefiting the community at the same time.
For the first time, the college held a dinner and dance for students, faculty and alumni.
Proceeds from ticket sales were donated to Labor of Love ministries, a charity that helped one of the junior college’s students in a time of need.
“This was the first one, we do plan on doing it again because we had a success and we look forward to raising even more money for more charities,” said Brian Colebank, W.Va. Junior College.
“And it was nice to see a lot of the graduates come back and participate and tell our current students ‘hey once you graduate and get out there things are great on the other side,” said Leanne Cardoso, W.Va. Junior College.
The college raised more than $800 with a lot of services donated by local businesses to cover costs.
