Good eats, good music, GREAT cause!

A night to support building a college-going culture in Rowan County

What it Supports

Funds raised from the BBQ, Bands, & Boots event will be used to create the Crosby Scholars Last Dollar Grant program. A Last Dollar Grant is need-based financial aid awarded to graduating Crosby Scholars who demonstrate remaining financial need once their college of choice has awarded financial aid. Crosby Scholars who complete the program their senior year with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher are eligible to apply for a Last Dollar Grant of up to $1,000 for college, each year for up to 4 years. In June 2016, the first senior class of Rowan Crosby Scholars will graduate. By sponsoring BBQ, Bands, & Boots, you have helped make the dream of going to college a reality for those students with unmet financial need.

Thanks to our Presenting Sponsor for this  year's event!
