Its helping put kids through college, one boat at a time.
The Pitt Community College 8th Annual Down East Boat Show wrapped up at five o'clock, Sunday, but not without some 3500 people walking through the doors, paying admission this weekend. Its those dollars that will help provide a number of scholarships, and special programs at the college, and its amazing how much this one event actually helps. Officials say they give out over 100,000 dollars in scholarships, and this one event will raise about a third of that.
Of course the catch and release fish tank was a hit with both kids and adults alike, giving the show just one more unique twist. WITN is a very proud sponsor of the event.
