We appreciate everyone who supported the 14th Annual Preakness Party; from the first day of planning to the soggy day of the event. We are truly touched by the commitment of all involved and grateful to be part of such a supportive community  We have the best committee members, volunteers, sponsors and guests!

About Preakness Party

The Preakness Party is an event that brings folks together to support the Rappahannock Community College Foundation and all of its efforts to support students.

Why Support the Preakness Party?

The Preakness Party raises funds to support a significant local cause. RCC is the only institution of higher education in a 12-county geographic region that is characterized by: higher poverty; lower income and lower education attainment rates than both the state and the nation. Having a strong, accessible community college in this region is key to ensuring brighter futures for our residents. As you enjoy the festivities, know that 50% of your ticket is a tax-deductible contribution to support the College and its students.

RCC Educational Foundation.
