Paradise Park donates $650 to MCC's emergency book fund
Chris Simon, general manager of Paradise Park, stands with MCC-Longview President Fred Grogan last week as he was presented a check for $650 dollars for the MCC-Longview Emergency Book Fund.
The money was part of a fundraiser held by Paradise Park at the 2011 Flights of Fancy kite festival.
The donation will benefit students who need assistance purchasing books required for the upcoming semester.
"We are thankful to Paradise Park and the support they lend not only to the campus, but also the support they give our students in a time of need," Grogan said.
Paradise Park is one of Lee's Summit's most popular family entertainment centers and, along with its owner John Ellis, has been a big supporter of the kite festival and the college for many years.
