Ignite your appetite on Tuesday, Sept. 26 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Restaurant 101 in Downtown Mocksville.

A portion of all sales will go to the Ignite Davie College Promise Program.

With $2 million raised, Davie is closing in on the $3 million endowment goal to make Ignite Davie permanent for Davie students.

The final fundraising efforts began with the Ignite Davie partners and is moving to businesses and individuals.

“Ignite  Your Appetite events are one of the ways for our community to support the Ignite Davie College Promise,” said Carolyn McManamy, a managing partner with Ignite Davie. “Ignite Davie College Promise is a solid investment in our students and our community, but it will take all of us working together to make it a success.”

Ignite Davie is a place-based last dollar scholarship that pays tuition and fees with a stipend for books for Davie County students to attend Davidson-Davie Community College full time to pursue a certificate, diploma or associate/transfer degree program. Students must live in and attend school in Davie County.

Since its launch in the Fall of 2020, 325 Davie students have taken advantage of the program and are continuing their education without incurring student debt.
