"We're very happy to have the opportunity to raise money and to provide back into our community," said the Laredo Asian Association's Yu-Hsien Huang Del Rio. "These funds are available through the school to all students that attend the two schools - LCC and TAMIU - and all they have to do is express an interest in gaining more knowledge through travel, through classes, and by studing abroad."
The next fundraiser for the association will be held October 18 at LIFE Downs.
