About the Scholarship Fund

All proceeds raised will go into the CCDWC Scholarship Fund. Together with the Calvert County Democratic Central Committee, the Democratic Club, and the Riverside Democratic Club, we fund a $1,250 scholarship for a graduating senior at each of Calvert's four public high schools every year. This auction is our club's main fundraiser for these scholarships.
