To assist graduating high school students in the Washington County area and help defray some of the cost of college, the Clique Club is hosting a scholarship fund fundraiser.
There are several ways community residents can help. The first is by making a donation at the Columbia Bank on Virginia Avenue. The second way is by purchasing raffle tickets for a chance to win dinner for two at the Airport Inn, a round of golf for two at Black Rock Golf Course or a chance to win a trip for two to Cancun.
To purchase raffle tickets, call Tanya at 240-409-8888.
