Collin Sets Date for 2007 Monopoly
December 1, 2006 - Take a stroll on the Boardwalk at MONOPOLY® Madness at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24 at The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano. The event is sponsored by Collin County Community College District (Collin) and the Collin College Foundation.
This fast-paced version of the MONOPOLY® game raises funds for scholarships for deserving Collin students. The goal is to raise $300,000 from the event, which would provide scholarships for deserving students.
Due to a lack of funds, more than 2,000 students who applied for financial aid at Collin were denied in 2006. Monies raised from this event will address the need for financial assistance for many of these students.
MONOPOLY® Madness begins with live music, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at the upscale Mustang Café. The fanfare continues with a MONOPOLY® frenzy at Neiman Marcus, complete with music, food and fun. The event culminates with playing the popular MONOPOLY® game in the mall's beautiful Grand Court, where guests will wheel and deal for a chance to win fabulous prizes. Delectable desserts and beverages will top off what promises to be the county's most unique fundraiser.
MONOPOLY® sponsor categories include Emperor ($20,000), Crown Jewels ($10,000), Royal Robe ($5,000), Silver Chalice ($2,500) and Coat of Arms ($1,250).
