Win a $500 Shopping Spree During

Kent Station’s “Moolah for Schoolah” Scholarship Fundraiser

 Group Of Diverse International Students Celebrating Graduation

Kent, Washington, March 1, 2016– Throughout the month of March, Kent Station will host its annual college scholarship fundraiser for Green River College (GRC) students – Moolah for Schoolah. Kent Station began the program in 2007 to provide scholarships to Kent graduates attending GRC. Since then, Kent Station has provided 31 scholarships totaling over $41,000 in college funding to students who might not be able to afford college otherwise.

The promotion has some fun changes this year! Kent Station customers can participate in the college fundraiser by picking up a Moolah for Schoolah “passport” available at all participating Kent Station merchants. Customers will receive a sticker just for going into each participating business and will receive an additional sticker each time they spend money at the business during the month of March. For each sticker that is given out, Kent Station will donate $1 to the Kent Station–Green River College Scholarship Fund. The more stickers on the passports, the more scholarships Kent Station will provide. Customers can pick up a passport all month and then drop off their passport at any participating business by April 4th.

Yelena Arkhipchuk is one of the 2015 scholarship recipients. She said “I was very happy to learn that I was a recipient of the Moolah for Schoolah scholarship. Thank you for your generous financial support towards my higher education. By awarding me the scholarship I am able to concentrate on what is important for me: education. Your financial generosity has allowed me to be one step closer to my goal and has inspired me to help others by giving back to the community. Thank you very much.”

To help students like Yelena, Kent Station encourages the community to visit participating Moolah for Schoolah merchants during March. By collecting stickers on a passport, the community can help college dreams become a reality and are eligible to win Kent Station prizes. Each sticker will give Kent Station customers the opportunity to win one of 10 prizes, including the Grand Prize of a $500 shopping spree to spend at Kent Station, plus gift cards ranging from $25 to $100. Each sticker will be one entry meaning that the more stickers the better the chances are to win a prize. The prize winners will be selected at random on April 11, 2016.

Windermere at Kent Station donated to the promotion, helping to offset the costs and helping to make it possible to reach our goal of donating $5000.

“The new passport is going to make Moolah for Schoolah a fun promotion to participate in.” said Cynthia Boyd, Kent Station Marketing Manager. “Our scholarships allow local high school graduates to achieve their dreams of higher education and thus giving them more opportunities to be successful members of our business community. We are always proud of our partnership with Green River College and the Green River College Foundation.”
