Beta Theta, a chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha service organization, sponsors an annual Mardi Gras-themed fundraiser and donates all proceeds to local charities, organizations, and local high school scholarships. The 2017 event raised over $15,000. Because of the success of the fundraiser, Sandi Stacy, a member of Beta Theta, recently visited Cooper Memorial Library to present a monetary donation to the Library.
Cooper Memorial Library, located at the Lake-Sumter State College, South Lake Campus, 2525 Oakley Seaver Dr., serves the community as well as the students of Lake-Sumter State College.
Save the Date! The next annual Mardi Gras will be held on February 10, 2018 at the Clermont Arts and Recreation Center.
