Magnet Fund to host fundraiser Saturday

The Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology has not only been providing area students with a valuable education, but also great experiences in various programs such as math team and science Olympia.

To continue to do that the Magnet Fund was started to provide financial support to such programs and initiatives not funded through the school system's regular budget.

This Saturday the Magnet Fund holds its biggest fundraiser of the year in The Magnet Connexion - A Community Event.

The Magnet Connection will feature an international wine tasting, light hors d'oeuvres, music and a silent auction. The event runs from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. at Club 908 and costs $30 per person in advance and $40 per person at the door.

During last year's fundraiser the Magnet Fund raised near $10,000, and is looking to exceed that amount Saturday night.

"We have gotten good support in the past," said Rockdale Magnet Fund secretary Roland Theodore.
