INA, Ill. (Oct. 9, 2017) – The sixth annual Criminal Justice Roundup for Scholarships fundraiser is returning later this month to raise money for Rend Lake College students. The event is set for 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23 in the Mt. Vernon Event Center, Salon C, formerly the Holiday Inn, in Mt. Vernon.
During the fundraiser, RLC faculty and one student scholarship recipient will address the audience about current events in the program. Students, family, friends, and patrons are invited to partake of hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar throughout the evening.
Annually, the evening brings in funds for students from individual donors, local law enforcement agencies, college faculty and staff, and many others. Last year, the program raised over $3,000 during the event.
