Foundation kicks off A Day for Nicolet
Oct. 5, 2015
The Nicolet College Foundation will kick off its biggest fundraising event of the year Oct. 6 when A Day for Nicolet gets underway throughout the Northwoods.
“Every dollar contributed to A Day for Nicolet is used for student scholarships,” said Nicolet College Foundation Executive Director Heather Schallock. “These scholarships have played an important role in supporting Nicolet students as they earn their degrees and diplomas. Without this financial support, many students would find it impossible to continue their education.”
This is the 15th year of the event.
During the kick-off Oct. 6 teams of volunteers will begin visiting businesses, organizations, clubs, and individuals throughout the region to generate donations.
To date the event has raised more than $1 million and resulted in the foundation being able to award more than 1,400 scholarships to help students fund their college educations.
