In The $treets: Books From Bekkah Raises Over $9,700 in Textbook Scholarships
Having attended Dr. Rebakkah Johnson's first Scholarship soirée last spring, I didn't think the second time would be as magical - but boy was I wrong! Last Friday night, Books From Bekkah, Inc. hosted their second annual scholarship soirée, where they raised over $9,700 in textbook scholarships for St. Louis Public School District high school seniors that have been accepted into a four-year university. There were over 21 applicants, and 10 of those students made the cut for $5,000 in college textbook scholarships.
The night was filled with good music, good food, and of course an open bar (that I may or may not have over-indulged in). After networking with some of the finest young professionals in the city, guests enjoyed the nights main events, which consisted of soulful music, a junior step-team, and of course the announcement of this years scholarship recipients.
Of course a party followed, and of course I don't really remember anything after that. What I do know, is that Dr. Johnson has proven once again that she can raise money for a good cause and have a damn good time doing it.
