Hazel Park Promise Zone fundraiser aids students with scholarships – The Oakland Press

For the past decade Hazel Park’s Promise Zone has funded college scholarships for high school students in the district.

“I am continually inspired by the dedication of community leaders as we’ve continued to grow and evolve the program,” said Brandon Gleaton, director of the nonprofit promise zone group, in a statement. “As Michigan’s economy continues to evolve, postsecondary education becomes increasingly important for individuals, employers and communities.”

The group this year is hosting its annual fundraiser dinner from 5:30 pm to 8 pm March 9 at the Regency Banquet Hall in Southfield. Tickets for the event are $75.

Last year’s fundraiser was virtual and raised $25,000. Gleaton said the goal for this year’s in-person event is to raise $50,000.

Though the promise program for Hazel Park school district students gets money from grants and donations, it still has to raise money locally to support the effort.

All the money goes to the promise zone, which funds tuition-free scholarships for Hazel Park

High school graduates can gain a tuition-free associate’s degree at Oakland Community College with a scholarship. Students who attend a college other than OCC get up to $1,500 per semester and a total of $6,000.
