The race to the Columbia School District Fifth Annual Golden Cash Bash on Saturday, February 23, 2019, is underway! The Cash Bash began in 2015, as a fun-filled celebration of the fabulous programs and activities offered at Columbia! The Cash Bash has raised almost $70,000 over the past four years. Last year the Columbia Community came together to raise more than $18,000!
The funds raised are focused on two main areas: Scholarships for Columbia Central High School Seniors and 3A’s Mini Grants. Many area individuals and businesses donated items, services, and vacation spots to the Cash Bash Silent Auction. In 2018 the Silent Auction raised $6,000 for Senior Scholarships. The funds raised for the 3A’s Mini Grants, which stands for Academics, Arts, and Athletics, flow directly from the Cash Bash ticket sales and raffles held during the event. Last spring, more than $12,000 was raised for the 3A’s Mini Grants.
Last year 18 seniors received scholarship funds from the funds raised from the Silent Auction. With scholarship awards ranging from $100 to $500. The students used their scholarships for books, tuition payments, and fees. The generosity of the Columbia community has made a positive impact on more than 75 seniors over the past four years.
The 3A’s Mini Grants have benefited our students by providing STEM activities, robotics parts, software programs to enhance learning opportunities, athletic items, field trips, and extra educational strategies. The funds raised for the mini grants helped to extend the ability of our teachers and coaches to make a difference in the lives of Columbia children.
