This Fundraising Dinner & Celebration is for the continued funding of nursing scholarships at San Jose State's Valley Foundation School of Nursing. This scholarship is an annual scholarship to include fees, books, equipment, and uniforms up to a maximum dollar amount as determined by the Donor. Two (2) Scholarships per year will be awarded to qualified students. This scholarship was established to honor the late Dorothy Carson, a retired RN and US Army Veteran, by her loving husband of 64 years, Red Carson.

We will have silent Auctions & Raffles of some amazing donated items & services.
