Crosby Scholars to host BBQ, Bands and Boots fundraiser

Rowan County Crosby Scholars

SALISBURY — Good eats and good music for a great cause. The BBQ, Bands and Boots fundraiser benefits Rowan County Crosby Scholars. This year’s event is Saturday, September 29 from 6:30-11 p.m. in the F&M Trolley Barn. The evening’s entertainment features acoustic guitar duo Melonbelly.

Jim ‘n Nicks Bar-B-Q will serve up slow-smoked BBQ pork and chicken, sides, and dessert. Beer, wine and Cheerwine will be provided. And back by popular demand – Bourbon on the Bread Truck with specially-selected top shelf bourbons.

Advanced tickets are $40 per person and $75 per couple. All proceeds will directly support the Last Dollar Grant program, need-based financial aid awarded to qualified Rowan County Crosby Scholars graduates with unmet financial need.

Since its first class of seniors in 2016, the Crosby Scholars program has graduated over 500 students. Over 40 percents of those students have been the first in their families to access college. Upon completing the Crosby Scholars program, students have the ability to apply for need-based financial assistance in the form of Last Dollar Grants, up to $1,000 each year for up to 4 years of undergraduate study. More than $285,000 of Last Dollar Grants have been awarded over the last 3 years to assist Crosby Scholars with college costs.

Call 704-762-3512 to make reservations for BBQ, Bands and Boots or visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bbq-bands-boots-tickets-49351329154 to purchase online. For more information, visit www.crosbyscholarsrowan.org.
