Charlottesville Democrats Raise Money for College Tuitions
Charlottesville Elk's Lodge
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
The Charlottesville Democratic Society is raising money for college tuitions.
The annual event honors the legacy of Grace Tinsley, a community leader that passed in 2006.
The Elks Lodge hosted the dinner where dozens of community members came out to support the cause.
Tinsley's daughter, Suzette Holt, says the event is the best way to honor her mother, who spent her career in the school system.
“I think it's a wonderful legacy for my mom,” Holt said. “She believed in college educations and children doing the best that they can to further their education. I know that she would be very honored to have her name associated with this scholarship.”
A scholarship committee will select students from Charlottesville High School who demonstrate excellence in school and community service to receive the award.
