With spring commencement ceremonies coming up, a lot of Galveston County high school seniors will be preparing to go to college; however, financial aid alone won’t get it done.
So, the Front Door Social & Charity Club is inviting you to attend its annual scholarship fundraiser event beginning at 9 p.m. today at the Front Door Club, 6106 FM 1765, in Texas City.
The Prime Time Band will perform today, and I heard it’s going to be a good time had by those who attend.
Tickets are $10 in advance from any member of the club or $12 at the door.
All proceeds will help the local nonprofit continue assisting local students further their education at the college of their choice.
