The fourth annual Sampson Community College Day at McDonald’s was held April 13 and a huge success. As in years past, a portion of the proceeds from sales that night at both local locations was given to the SCC Foundation to help support student scholarships.
Last week’s event raised $2,500 for the Foundation.
“Our locally and family-owned McDonald’s restaurants are honored to partner with Sampson Community College, and we look forward to SCC Day at our Clinton McDonald’s annually,” Hugh Caison, owner of Caison Enterprises, who manages the Clinton McDonald’s. “Supporting local students, and SCC, is exactly in line with what we believe in as Caison Enterprises, and what my family personally believes in as community members.”
The SCC Foundation sponsors many events, such as a campus drive, a golf tournament and auction, and a phonathon, all to raise money, much of which goes to fund scholarships for students. The night at McDonald’s is just another endeavor for the Foundation and way to raise much needed funds.
“Sampson Community College is grateful of the continued support that Hugh Caison provides to the SCC Foundation through the SCC Day at McDonald’s in Clinton,” SCC president Dr. Paul Hutchins, said. “Please visit a Clinton McDonald’s on April 13 and support the SCC Foundation scholarship program.”
Caison, owner of the two McDonald’s in Clinton, serves on the Foundation Board of Directors and is an alumnus of Sampson Community College. Over the past two years, $2,500 has been donated to the Foundation from the event.
