MCCC to Host "Spring Into Student Success" Fundraiser April 4


WEST WINDSOR – Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC) Foundation Board of Directors will host the college’s annual spring fundraiser "Spring Into Student Success!" on Thursday, April 4, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Mercer Oaks Catering, 725 Village Road West, Princeton Junction.

Now in its 24th year, proceeds from the celebratory event support student scholarships and other student needs. Event co-chairs are Nina Melker, senior vice president at Hopewell Valley Bank, and Mercer County Freeholder Pasquale Colavita Jr.

"Today’s college students face financial challenges that didn’t even exist a few short years ago," Melker said. "But through our collective efforts, we have the power to help them attend college and achieve their goals."

Nina Melker, senior vice president at Hopeweill Valley Bank, and Mercer County Freeholder Pat Colavita Jr., co-chairs of the annual Mercer County Community College fundraiser "Spring Into Student Success," preside over a planning committee meeting.


Each year the MCCC Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships to high-achieving and financially-qualified students, including non-traditional students, part-time students and single parents. Many students benefit from endowed or named scholarships established by donors through the Foundation. And all is made possible through partnerships forged throughout the community, said Colavita.

"The Spring Into Student Success event represents what’s best about Mercer County – community partners coming together for the benefit of MCCC students with the focus on helping them achieve their personal and professional objectives," Colavita said.

This year’s event features a silent auction and awards presentation honoring three community partners, as well as high-achieving students who have earned Foundation scholarships. Musical entertainment will be provided by Mercer student musicians. Refreshments include hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, coffee and desserts.

Businesses and community members are invited to participate through corporate sponsorships, advertisements in the program book, silent auction donations, and tickets to the event. Tickets are $115 each, or two for $215. For more information, visit www.mccc.edu/give, e-mail foundation@mccc.edu, or contact Charlene Dow Edwards at (609) 570-3659.
