Tacos Tecates Scholarships Fundraiser

Proceeds help to raise money for student scholarships

JACKSON, TENN. – The Jackson State Community College (JSCC) Foundation is set to host its second annual Tacos, Tecates & Scholarships fundraiser on October 12 from 6-9 p.m. at Skillet Junction in Downtown Jackson.

All proceeds raised from this event go toward the Tacos, Tecates & Scholarships fund to support Jackson State Community College through Foundation scholarships. Last year, the JSCC Foundation was able to raise nearly $30,000 in total scholarships and student relief.

“Last year, our community made this event a great success and raised almost $3,000 in scholarships for our students. We’re hoping to see even more community support and money raised for our students this year,” said JSCC Foundation Director Lindsey Tritt. “Tacos & Tecates is open to the entire Jackson and West TN community. If you’re looking to have a great time, and help the next generation of college students, this is an event you won’t want to miss.”

Tickets for the event are $40 per person and include two drink tickets as well as made-to-order tacos. There will also be music and salsa dancing throughout the evening with salsa lessons provided by JSCC faculty.
