Around 400 people supported students at Darton State College by attending a formal event Thursday night.

Darton's scholarship gala included a cocktail reception, silent auction and dinner. Organizers hope to raise more than $40,000 for student scholarships.

"The scholarship dollars that are raised tonight go towards our dean merit scholarships and other scholarships that are academic-based, performance-based as well as some need-based," said Dean for Advancement Tracy Goode. "But tonight is a night we celebrate scholarships."

Thursday marked the 7th annual Darton Foundation Scholarship Gala.
