MCCC's 2009 Scholarship Dinner Dance
A Success for Student Scholarships


WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- Supporters of Mercer County Community College went "On a Sea Cruise" as the college hosted its 20th annual Scholarship Dinner Dance on March 7 at the Hyatt Regency, Princeton. A festive evening with a serious purpose, the event drew hundreds of supporters and raised scholarship dollars for students who otherwise might not have the opportunity for a college education.

Nina Melker of The Bank of Princeton served as event chair. Her committee orchestrated an elegant evening with a successful silent auction including original artwork donated by area artists.
