Monopoly Night raises $20k for student scholarships

Last week, Monopoly Night raised $20,000 in scholarship funds for Ivy Tech Community College Northeast’s Wabash Campus, which will likely fund $1,000 scholarships for 20 students.

 

More than 100 people attended the event, where they played Monopoly, bid on silent auction items, and dined.

 

2017 marked the fundraiser’s eighth year. In total, it has raised nearly $135,000 in scholarships for students attending the Wabash Campus.

 

“Many students have expressed their gratitude at receiving these scholarships,” says Pamella Guthrie, Wabash Campus site director. “It is not just the funding but the knowledge that somebody believes in them enough to donate funds to encourage them to reach their educational goals. This kind of community support is incredibly meaningful to students, staff, and faculty.”
