The trivia night raised funds for the MCC Scholarship Fund, which offers grants to students who qualify for aid to pay for their education. “We had a phenomenal response from friends and associates of the college, and we hope this will become an annual fundraiser of a totally different variety.”

Winners received various prizes, but the real winners will be students of MCC, who will be able to access this grant funding to help pay for course credits and for school materials to make their education a little more affordable.
