ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

High School seniors in Albany will now get help paying for college, thanks to a local sorority chapter. 

The Zeta Phi Beta Sorority held its Jazz in Blue fundraiser tonight.

They're raising money to fund scholarships.

Over 250 people packed Albany State University to hear the Southern Art Music Ensemble, and comedian Malik Jones.

Organizers said this event helps connect the sorority with the community.

"With our scholarship program this is our way of giving back to our students to help along with higher education. So therefore when they come out they apply for the scholarships in January, we get those reports back in March," said Anita Clay Moody. 

Money raised from Saturday will also go to Project Z Hope and March for Babies.
