Fundraiser to support scholarships for non-traditional students
The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce and its Women in Business Committee invites the community to spread the love at its annual Sweethearts & Scholarships fundraiser on Feb. 1, hosted by HeadPinz Entertainment Center Fort Myers.
Sweethearts & Scholarships is an event that raises funds for Women in Business scholarships, which are awarded annually to non-traditional students at Florida Gulf Coast University, Florida SouthWestern State College and local technical colleges. Funds support traditional scholarships as well as gap funding for industry certifications to assist with local workforce development efforts.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network and bid on prizes, which include desserts, wines, wine-related items and more. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Women in Business scholarships.
Sweethearts & Scholarships will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at HeadPinz Fort Myers, located at 14513 Global Parkway in Fort Myers. Admission is $10 for Chamber members and $20 for future members and includes one complimentary drink and light appetizers.
