We are all very excited about the wonderful things that parents, teachers, and our community merchants have provided for this fundraiser.

These baskets contain great things for yourself or for

gift giving at the holidays! You won't be disappointed!!

In the next several days, we will be posting pictures and

descriptions of the baskets up for Raffle and Silent Auction.

All proceeds will go to the GFCC Dr. Bill Jones Scholarship Fund

to help children attend GFCC who could not otherwise afford it.

The Red Wagon picture on the left is a symbolic reminder of two GFCC alumni children and scholarship recipients. They did not live far from GFCC, and they only had one car. So their mother pulled both of them to school every day in a red wagon. Their parents realized that their preschool years were an important part of their social, emotional, and educational success. They were willing to make the sacrifice to get their children to school every day, rain or shine. We "Thank" them for this important reminder.
