The Bright Minds Scholarship organization has its annual fundraiser each October, and this year will mark the 12th year; having awarded over 470 graduating and follow-up scholarships to students from all five Wharton County high schools, supporting recipients as they work their way through four years of higher education.
The year’s event will again feature five-time Grammy winner B.J. Thomas returning to make his fifth appearance, singing with the original Triumphs.
As a result of the tragic flood disaster from Hurricane Harvey, the Bright Minds leadership team is working to expand this year’s event to a combination fundraiser for both scholarships and disaster relief in the Wharton County area.
Bright Minds is teaming with Wharton Chamber of Commerce and their Charity organization – Small Business Relief Fund.
The fundraising event will be held Saturday, Oct. 21, at the El Campo Civic Center in El Campo from 6 p.m. to midnight. The event features a catered meal by Vincek’s Smokehouse of East
