Donors Support SSU Gala with $92K

Savannah State University kicked off its annual gala celebration this morning in front of the historic Hill Hall. They're making plans for the very important party. It's Savannah State's largest scholarship fundraising campaign. Today, donors handed over $92,000 to help students continue their education.

"This is about scholarship support of some deserving students who do wonderful things around this community and the world," said Dr. Carlton Brown, SSU's president. "I might add and we constantly seek support of the community so we can support the students."

Last year, SSU raised $115,000. So they're hoping to do even better this year.
