Good eats, good music, GREAT cause!
A night to support building a college-going culture in Rowan County.
BBQ, Bands, & Boots was the first ever Rowan County Crosby Scholars community event, designed to raise funds to support our mission of preparing students in Rowan County for successful college admission.
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 $1,200 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 will help make the dream of going to college a reality for those students with unmet financial need.
Our first event was a great success! Thank you to all who supported BBQ, BANDS, & BOOTS to benefit Rowan Crosby Scholars. Click here to see some highlights of the evening's festivities.
