The Mitchell Community Scholarship Fund will hold its 10th annual Radiothon on Monday on KMIT and KOOL 98 radio in Mitchell.
The fund was established in 2002 to provide a scholarship for every graduate of Mitchell Senior High School and Mitchell Christian School who applies. To date, the fund has awarded 1,486 scholarships totaling more than $535,000. Last year’s awards were $550 and $500 each.
The Radiothon is a one-day fundraiser that has grown in size and scope each year. Last year, the event raised more than $55,000. It is the primary fundraiser for the Mitchell Community Scholarship Fund.
This year, donors will be once again able to participate in raffles for a 50-inch flatscreen television or an HP laptop computer. Pledges of $50 will enter a donor for one chance at the TV. Those pledging $25-$49 will have a chance to win the laptop, donated by Tech Solutions.
Supporters can make a pledge online by visiting www.mitchellcommunityscholarship.com and clicking on the “Donate” button.
The Radiothon will be broadcast from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on FM 105.9 and 98.3.
