The funds raised by the Roswell Woman’s Club 16th Annual Showcase Home were awarded over the summer at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Roswell.
More than $92,000 was awarded to the community as college scholarships, teacher grants and grants to non-profit charities, thanks to the money raised through the showcase. Twenty deserving seniors from ten North Fulton high schools received scholarships. Additionally, educational grants to eight schools and two other educational organizations will be utilized to provide various computer technology and mentoring to increase student performance. And, finally, the great work of several North Fulton non-profit organizations was recognized through eighteen grants distributed during the evening.
