Online Auction to Support ACCC Student Nursing Scholarships Raises $5,800

October 31, 2007

Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation's Second Annual Arts, Leisure and Entertainment Online Auction to support scholarships and grants for ACCC's nursing students raised nearly $5,800.

The auction ran from Sept. 28-Oct. 19, with a live event that took place on Oct. 19 at the Cape May County Fundraiser. This exciting virtual event helps the ACCC Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity, support needy and deserving ACCC nursing program students.

The public was invited to bid on more than 60 items, including original works of art, collectibles, jewelry, a quilt and autographed books. Additional items included an overnight stay at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and vouchers for Spirit Airlines tickets.

Founded in 1978 as an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation is dedicated to serving the mission of ACCC by providing financial support to the college and its students. In its history, the Foundation has raised over $2 million for college scholarships, academic programs and enhancing the campus environment. For more information, visit www.atlantic.edu/foundation
