This event is for the purpose of raising funds for the Lee County School Foundation, specifically for their program, “Take Stock In Children”. This successful program provides four year college scholarships to any Florida college or university for children l form difficult family situations. The students are nominated by their eight grade teachers. They then sign a contract agreeing to maintain a 2.5 grade point average, stay crime and drug free, and have no school disciplinary problems, all through high school. We provide adult mentors for them, and if they fulfill their contacts promises, they receive the scholarship. The program has already produced many college graduates from students, who could never even dream of going to college. Hopefully, these individuals have earned themselves freedom from the cycle of poverty, forever.
