Last year, VAEOPP was able to award (8) TRIO students from across the state with over $4,000 in scholarships thanks to the fundraising participation of those who attended the 2016 annual conference. We are asking for your support once again!
A portion of the scholarship fund is collected through the Themed Basket Raffle. If each college and/or program would donate a unique basket to be raffled off, we can continue to support our students’ unmet need. Examples of past baskets have been various restaurants, family-friendly activities, wine & cheese baskets, activities/excursions, travel accessories, jewelry, etc. (Please keep in mind that some areas of the state may not have access to local restaurants and retail stores if gift cards are provided.)
Please plan to also support the fundraiser by purchasing raffle tickets!! Throughout the conference, you will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets. The lucky winners of each basket will be announced on Wednesday, November 15th.
100% of the proceeds from the Themed Basket Raffle will go toward the Scholarship Fund.
