ONTARIO – More than 300 students at Treasure Valley Community College have good reason to hope a fundraising auction coming up next week goes well.

They each share in scholarships that cover some of their school costs with money raised at the biggest event of the year for the TVCC Foundation.

The annual gala is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 5, at Four Rivers Cultural Center.

“The money is ultimately going to students, providing the whole student body an opportunity to come here and earn money, do well in classes, do well in sports,” said Caresse Basaraba, a student from Elko, Nevada, who plays softball as a Chukar.

Basaraba said the scholarship helps her . . .
