ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Local choir groups came together to raise money for college hopefuls. The event was held Sunday at Christian Life Baptist Church.

Five lucky students received a $1,000 scholarship towards their education.

The organizer said the check could go a long way in determining when a student goes to college.

"A $1000 scholarship may not sound like a lot but when it comes to buying books, it could be the difference in a child going to school and having to sit out a semester," said choir member Shelby Daniel.

This was the first time the groups came together for the event.

Daniel says they hope to hold more events like it in the future.
