Lumberton High School Project Graduation organization was busier than usual this past weekend. On Saturday, they held a garage sale, link sale, and car show on the LHS campus.
Funds that were raised go toward the graduation night event and prizes for students. Graduating LHS seniors will have an opportunity to attend the graduation party that will take place at Main Event in Webster, Tx. The entire facility will be rented out just for participating LHS graduates.
Project Graduation President Bradley Coble says they have raised enough to pay for the Main Event rental, buses, and some gifts for the kids. “Everything we do from here on out goes toward gifts for the kids,” he said. Gifts will include gift cards and various prizes.
The car show was an opportunity for car enthusiasts to exhibit their prized vehicles for awards. Awards included: Seniors’ Choice, Imports, Special/Antique, Domestic ’91-Current, Trucks/SUVs, Domestic ’65-’90, and People’s Choice.
According to Coble, all three fundraising efforts brought in $2,000 that day; which will go toward student gifts. It looks like the graduates will have an unforgettable night thanks to this organization.
