Military families scholarships strike gold!
Over 150 guests assembled at Camp Withycombe on Friday, October 28th, to raise funds for the Clackamas Community College Military Families Scholarship Endowment and enjoy meeting and hearing from the cast of Gold Rush.
Gold Rush is a reality series on The Discovery Channel and tells the mining stories of Jack Hoffman, Jim Thurber and "the gang".
Both Jack and Jim donated a ½ ounce of gold which was won as a door prize by the lucky winner of the golden ticket drawing.
$220,000 was raised in gifts and pledges bringing the new balance of the endowment to almost $500,000 which will provide over $20,000 annually in scholarships for veterans and their families.
