Saturday was day 30 of a 90 day push to save the Barrett Early Learning Center in Charlottesville.

People from across the community gathered at Maya restaurant on West Main Street for a lunch to benefit the state's oldest preschool.

The center announced in July it would have to close its doors.

This fundraising push to raise $75,000 is keeping the preschool afloat.

"We set a goal of 90 days for $75,000, and we're well on our way, we know this is going to help in that direction, we're still looking for the community to offer various forms of support - we're confident that this is going to be the jumpstart that will lead to the future that we're all expecting and excited about," Hodari Hamilton, president of the Center, said.

So far, the Center is a third of the way to its $75,000 goal.
