Germanna President David A. Sam welcomed a crowd of over 250, saying, “Because of your generosity, our students are already winners.”

All proceeds go to the Germanna Guarantee Program, which helps students with financial need make up gaps left by financial aid in order to allow them to continue their educations.

Each year the evening features food, drinks, music, dancing and Las Vegas-style gaming including poker, roulette, craps and blackjack.

Germanna serves over 13,000 students in the city of Fredericksburg and the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, Culpeper, Orange, King George, Caroline and Madison.
