OROVILLE — Nearly two dozen entertainment acts took the stage Thursday, March 8, for the 13th annual Oroville Scholarship Foundation spring variety show and auction.
“Best variety show to date and it was our 13th show,” Foundation Treasurer Doreen Cleman said Friday morning. “The acts were wonderful; very entertaining and what a variety.”
Acts ranged from singers and songwriters, to comedians and dancers.
“The crowd was very interactive as well,” Cleman said. “We have some very talented people in our community.”
In conjunction with the show, live and silent auctions brought in nearly $5,500.
“I personally want to thank everyone who spent time preparing for this event; it takes a lot of volunteer hours to have everything go smoothly,” she said. “In all we made $5500 for the continuing education scholarships and the Oroville School (District) music department.”
The foundation, which puts on the annual show in conjunction with the music department, is the primary fundraiser for the non-profit organization.
Since the committee’s beginning in 1996, the group of volunteers has awarded nearly $49,950 to continuing education students and an additional $235,051 to local graduates.
In 2015 $5,700 was awarded to 13 Oroville High School graduates.
