2009 Scholarship Dinner Dance
A Success for Student Scholarships
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.
