Many thanks to everyone who attended the scholarship fundraiser ‘An Evening with the Stars’ for Lord Fairfax Community College. It was an enormously successful event with enough money raised through the silent auction, live auction and donations to more than double the number of scholarships available to local citizens.
The White House Farm Foundation was pleased to host this truly community event with music provided by Blue Note Duo, catering by West Main Market and many wonderful auction donations from local artists, businesses and individuals. Students, volunteers and staff helped make the evening go smoothly with an attendance of about 160 (and a waiting list!)
Lord Fairfax Community College opened its Luray campus as the third branch of the school and attendance has steadily grown through the years. Courses are offered in biology, math, history, art, English, religion and ethics, etc.
LFCC offers more than 75 associate degrees and certificate programs and is committed to helping students attend through a combination of financial aid. Last year, LFCC awarded almost 13 million dollars in scholarships, grants, loans and work-study with assistance to more than 3,300 students.
We were pleased to share the beauty of the farm and its facilities with Lord Fairfax Community College and look forward to working together to enhance educational opportunities in Page County.
