Davidson College Students Host Fundraiser For Aid

Students at Davidson College are inviting the public to help their effort to raise funds for the school's financial aid programs.

The fourth annual "Dinner at Davidson" is scheduled for Saturday night.

All are invited to the production of a student play titled "Trust: The Play." There's no specific admission charge, but donations will be accepted.

For $1,000 per guest, participants can enjoy a pre-dinner reception hosted by college President Carol Quillen. Those guests, plus others who donate $100 per person, will be invited to the dinner, which will be prepared by a student cooking group.

All funds raised will support the Davidson Trust, the college's longstanding commitment to need-blind admission and its historic 2007 decision to meet 100 percent of demonstrated financial need. Last year's event raised $50,000.
