Barbeque fundraiser raises money for scholarships in Bay City

People in Bay City enjoyed a barbeque meal to help support a local scholarship fund.

People in Bay City came together to enjoy some barbeque and to raise money to help students go to college.

Crowds gathered at Veteran's Memorial Park for the Nathan Weidner scholarship fundraiser.

"I just can't say how much I appreciate the community for getting behind us to do this and for all the volunteers, no one gets paid in this organization and it's fabulous," said Ann Weidner, NathanĂ¢??s mother.

The scholarship was created in Nathan's memory after he was killed in a car accident at age 15.

Ten students enrolled at Delta College will receive $1,500 over two years.

It is the 19th year of the fundraiser.

Students must demonstrate financial need to receive the scholarship.
