CCEF Promoting Return of Derby Day Fundraiser

If you attended last week's Clinton Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, you may have stopped by the Clinton Community Education Foundation, or CCEF, booth and learned about all the things the organization does but also heard they are bringing back its Derby Day fundraiser.


The fundraiser did not happen last year but Chris Schaffer with the CCEF told Regional Radio as part of its live coverage from the Expo last week, the event is returning in 2024.



Fundraisers like the Derby Day Fundraiser help the district in its effort to provide for what its budget cannot. Schaffer points to things like its classroom grants they awarded last month as one of the efforts they led to do that.



According to Schaffer, the CCEF also helps fund opportunities for students to take dual-credit courses and sponsors opportunities outside the classroom for a lot of students through a unique program at Heartland Community College.



The CCEF has tickets for the May 4 Derby Day fundraiser at its website, ccef15.org. You can follow the group on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
