The St. Bernard Volunteers for Family and Community, Inc. (SBVFC) have been awarding $1,000 scholarships to four (4) graduating high school seniors, who are residents of St. Bernard Parish. In order to continue this tradition of the last 8 years, we are sponsoring a raffle with a grand prize of $500.00 and other items including a television, a Santa Claus statue (valued at $800.00) and many more… Tickets are only $1.00 each.
The prizes will be awarded at a luncheon/fashion show to be held on Saturday, December 2, at The Gathering (7265 St. Bernard Hwy., Arabi). Doors open at 10:30 a.m., with lunch being served at 11:30 a.m., a fashion show at 12:30 p.m. and the drawing at 1:30 p.m. Stage will provide the attire for the fashion show. Our models will be prior scholarship winners, as well as members of the St. Bernard community.
