More than 50 guests from the Hill College service area attended the come-and-go event and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, drinks and fellowship. Hill College Fire Academy students provided free valet services to event guests. Music was provided by Nathaniel Earhart, adjunct guitar instructor.

Hill College Director of Development Leigh Ebner said the event would not have been possible without the generous support of sponsors.

“The sponsors for Boots and Suits really came through this year,” she said. “Because of them, students will have opportunities to start or further their education that they may not have had without these wonderful people, organizations and businesses. It was wonderful to see people working together for such a great cause as raising money for student scholarships.”
