LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 1, 2010) The first "Night of Glamour Gala," a scholarship fundraiser held Aug. 21 at the Lawrenceburg Campus of Bluegrass Community and Technical College, raised $6,820 toward scholarships for Lawrenceburg students.

More than 100 people attended the Gala. The Gala included a silent auction, and the Jimmy Church Band provided music for the event.

"We appreciate that so many turned out to support a scholarship fund for BCTC's Lawrenceburg Campus," said President Dr. August A. Julian. "Students will benefit from the generosity of the community and, in turn, students and graduates will help the region grow. It is a great partnership."

The college would like to thank the generous donors, the corporate and community sponsors, and the Planning Committee for making the Gala a success.
