Two Tyler restaurants will donate a portion of their Thursday proceeds to Tyler Junior College scholarships.
On Thursday, Aug. 22, Happy’s Fish House, located at 2202 E. Fifth St. in Tyler, and Posado’s Cafe, located at 2500 E. Fifth St., will show their support for TJC and the TJC Foundation Golf Tournament by allocating 10 percent of that day’s proceeds toward TJC scholarships.
Last year, TJC provided approximately $3.5 million in scholarship funding. However, with almost 70 percent of full-time students requiring some sort of financial assistance, hundreds of deserving students are unable to receive scholarships each year.
Tournament sponsors such as Happy’s and Posado’s help to fill the financial gap during this time of critical need, as all proceeds from the annual event directly fund student scholarships.
