HOPLAND – The Mendocino College Foundation's annual “Gala on the Green,” held this year on June 21, once again raised thousands of dollars to benefit both students and program.

This year's gala raised an estimated $30,000, the foundation reported.

Three prominent Lakeport residents – Peggy Campbell, Wilda Shock and David Geck – serve on the Mendocino College Foundation, and all three worked diligently to make this fundraising event happen.

Proceeds from the gala and other fundraising activities during the past 24 years have allowed the foundation to provide more than $675,000 in student scholarships and more than $500,000 in support for educational programs and districtwide projects.

Call the foundation office at 467-1018 for more information about becoming a Friend of Mendocino College.
