The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) chapter at Surry Community College held its second annual March Madness basketball game fundraiser on March 29 at the SCC Gym in Dobson.

Faculty and staff teamed up against students for a friendly matchup to bring the SCC community together for a cause. All proceeds from the event, including admission and concessions ran by NSLS members, were donated to NCPacks4Patriots, an organization native to North Carolina that sends care packages to North Carolina soldiers stationed abroad. Last year alone, the not-for-profit organization served over 100,000 North Carolinians in the military.

For the second year in a row, the student team won, defeating their faculty/staff opponents by 18 points. Regardless of the score, there is no argument that the fundraiser was a success. NSLS raised a total of $573.30 to donate, up nearly $200 from last year’s sum. Members also collected thank you cards made by children in the community to send along with the care packages NCPacks4Patriots provides. The NSLS members were also able to build leadership skills through the planning and preparation of the event.
