Sedalia’s Project Graduation Fundraiser Bringing Delicious Food and Chances to Win Cash [INTERVIEW]

smith cotton tigerThe Smith-Cotton Project Graduation Fundraiser in Sedalia is a huge undertaking, and seems to get bigger and bigger every year.  Everyone in our area is interested in keeping families intact and healthy.  Nobody wants to have another tragic statistic added to the rolls, ruining what should be a proud celebration. 

Project Graduation emerged in the Oxford Hills area (Paris/Norway) of Maine, in 1980, the result of community energies empowered through a state initiative. It has long since been recognized as helping to protect the lives of graduating seniors in all states. Project Graduation is a program offered by many high schools in the United States, in which organized, adult-supervised and alcohol-free activities are offered as part of a post-graduation party, as an alternative to student-run events involving alcoholic beverages or other drugs. Students are checked for illicit substances before entry and are carefully monitored. The local Project Graduation is raising their necessary funding to put on the event. Tickets to the fundraiser are $100 and provide two chicken dinners complete with cheesy potatoes, green beans, rolls and dessert, and a chance to win cash – there is a $2500 grand prize, plus other prizes ranging from $50 to $1500. There also will be a silent auction for themed baskets.

Here’s my discussion with one of the organizers of the event, Jamie Bethel, about the details.

Dinner is 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8, in the Smith-Cotton High School cafeteria. All proceeds will be used to pay for the Project Graduation party for the Class of 2014, held the night of Commencement. For tickets or to make donations, Jami Williams at 636-544-0962 or Jamie Bethel at 660-221-4649.

Graduatingly yours,
Behka
