Heritage University’s 35th annual Bounty of the Valley Scholarship dinner brought in a record of more than $861,000 in funds for student education.
The event, held virtually for the second year in a row on June 5, brought in over $832,000 in scholarship funds the night of, with additional funds coming in since. Funds raised as of Thursday surpassed last year’s amount by roughly $10,000, according to the university.
All funds go directly to supporting student scholarships.
Normally hosted at the Toppenish campus, the event was instead a one-hour television event on KAPP and KVEW-TV as well as the university’s website, as was the case last year. It featured video segments from past scholarship beneficiaries, local lawmakers and business leaders.
