WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Business leaders and community members came together to raise money for Cape Fear Community College today.

The school’s annual Gift of Education Luncheon raises money to help students purchase books and other financial aid programs.

This year’s keynote speaker was NASCAR legend and part owner of Midnight Moonshine Distillery Junior Johnson.

“Back in the days when I was growing up, people didn’t get a good education,” Johnson said. “When I got into racing, I needed every bit of education I could get.

CFCC spokesperson David Hardin says that today’s luncheon brought in more than $500,000.

    A single luncheon brings in $500,000.
    Hello? Anyone home?
    You want your sports programs to remain intact?
    Boosters, alumni, business leaders? Get a luncheon together.
    Have 4 of them “seasonally”
    Or is the University too uppity to take a page of of a “community colleges book”????


  • Wilmington Observer says:

    I think that there would be a better turnout if the students (who want the programs to continue) put the luncheon together. “Boosters, alumni, business leaders”…… They are all SO boring.
