Fundraiser Event Raises Funds for Forrest History Scholarship at McNeese
A fundraiser for the Dr. Robert Forrest History Scholarship at McNeese State University recently raised over $12,000 for the endowed scholarship. The event – hosted by Lake Charles Mayor Nic Hunter at the Harlequin Restaurant – included a silent auction, brunch and a historical trivia competition. To date over $86,000 has been given to the scholarship, which is designated for history and liberal arts majors.
