LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The McNeese Black Alumni Chapter hosted a scholarship fundraiser at the Robert Noland Alumni Pavilion called 'Jazz it Up.'

The event featured Jennings Saxophonist, Marcus Davis, and hosted a silent auction.

All the money from Saturday's event will go towards scholarships for current students which Chapter President, Deneen Sweet says is very important.

"In order for us to keep the students in school and to provide them with everything that they need while they're in school, it's essential that we raise funds and that we also help with them on campus," said Sweet.

Attendees from as far as Deridder came out to support.

The McNeese Black Alumni Chapter plans to hold more fund-raising events for students in the spring.
