Texas Tech students from the Rawls college of business are teaming up for a service learning project. The fundraiser 'The High Cotton Affair' benefits Link Ministries' high cotton area.
Students are enrolled in two classes, event planning and personal selling and they coordinate everything from the dinner to entertainment.
It's an idea inspired from the Light Up Tent City event last year when students and faculty installed solar lighting for occupants. Professor Dr. Bob McDonald said it's a way for students to learn how to give back to the community .
"I just saw this need and i knew we have so much talent at Tech. We have just incredible students and i just knew if we put enough students together that we could come up with something and make a difference," McDonald said.
The theme is 'Western Elegance'. The dinner will be held April 20 at 7 pm at the Valley of Lubbock Scottish Rite, located at 1101 70th St. Individual tickets are $150 and $1,000 for a table of eight.
