LAKE JACKSON — The Brazosport College Foundation will host its biennial Scholarship Soirée, “Sip Sip Soirée: A Speakeasy Affair,” at 7 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Dow Academic Center at Brazosport College.

Matt and Natalie Broaddus are the event chairs, and Rich and Trudy Wells are the honorary chairs.

Money raised at this event will be used to fund student scholarships. The need for scholarships continues to grow as enrollment at Brazosport College reaches more students each year.
