About the Preakness Party

Celebrating its eleventh year, the Preakness Party raises money for the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation (RCC EFI). Each year RCC EFI provides funds to help students excel, as well as money for creative projects and innovative programs which are not fully supported by state allocations. Your attendance and generosity help support:

  • Access to higher education via scholarships for RCC students.
  • Academic courses and community continuing education.
  • Programs to support professional development for RCC’s faculty and staff.
