Scholarship board to hold fundraiser Saturday


The Drew County Single Parent Scholarship Board will host its summer fundraiser, “Tea and Talent Show: It’s a Family Affair” at 4 p.m. Saturday, June 1 at the Ethel Hawkins Christian Life Center in Monticello.

A meal will be served, and there will be a show featuring a variety of local talent. Tickets are available for $5 apiece and can be purchased from any board member. They can also be purchased at the door or by calling (870) 723-9820 or (870) 723-4590.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will support Drew County single parents and their efforts to advance their education. For every dollar raised, $1.60 is matched by the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship organization. Anyone wishing to make a donation, any time of year, is welcome to contact the board.
