Now in its tenth year, the Preakness Party raises money for the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation (RCC/EFI). Each year, RCC/EFI awards scholarships that help students excel, and provides funds for creative projects and innovative programs not fully supported by state allocations. Your attendance and generosity help support:

  • Academic courses and community continuing education opportunities;
  • The only institution of higher education in twelve counties on the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula;
  • Access to higher education via scholarships while Virginia state funding is at an all-time low

The mission of RCC is to provide access to high quality educational experiences for members of its community, preparing them for success as learners, employees, and citizens of the 21st century. Attending the Preakness Party is certainly a pleasant way for you to help RCC fulfill this mission.
