Proceeds from this event go towards a Scholarship Program for individuals who need assistance with Higher Education. College graduates are more likely able to earn twice as much as someone one with a high school diploma. Other statistics show, people who attend college tend to be healthier and a generally more rounded person than someone who has just got a high school education.
For students coming from a less wealthy background the large cost of going to college can seem daunting for themselves and their family. The statistics for college graduates do clearly show that investing in the students own future can pay off dividends in the future, both in monetary value and in social skills and pleasure.*
