HOLYOKE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- A big day for Holyoke Community College after wrapping up their successful fundraising campaign, Together HCC.

Tuesday morning Gary Rome, President of Gary Rome Hyundai, presented the college with a $10,000 check for their fundraising efforts.

The grand total is just below $112,000, and it’s all to help students stay in school.

The President of HCC, Christina Royal, said how much this funding will help the students stay in school and reach their own goals.

“The funds raised in this campaign are to directly help students, to change their lives through education, and we’re so grateful these funds will be used to help mitigate the financial barriers to success," Royal said.

Gary Rome went on to say it’s important to shine a light on this wonderful institution that is right here in our backyards.
