ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

People put on their best denim Saturday and placed their bids. 

The Officers' Spouses' Club hosted the Denim and Diamonds scholarship and charity fundraiser at Merry Acres Event Center. 

Local and distant businesses and community members donated items that were auctioned off.

All proceeds go back to military families and the community of Albany. 

"The funds that we will collect from our donations in the silent and live auction items will go towards our scholarships for high school seniors and spouses and for local community non profits," said 2nd Vice President Kara Collins.

The Officers' Spouses' Club provides a means for spouses to come together by supporting the military through social events and volunteering.
