The Riverview Woman's Club will host a Country Shindig fundraiser to raise money for college scholarships for high school seniors who are Riverview residents.

The dinner, dance and games are from 6 to 10 p.m. April 12 at the Winthrop Barn, 11349 Bloomingdale Ave.

The goal is to raise $3,000 for three $1,000 scholarships. The students must be 2014 public high school graduates who plan to attend a two- or four-year college or university in Florida.

Since the Riverview Woman's Club formed in 2012, the organization has awarded $4,000 in scholarship money to students who have demonstrated high academic achievement, community service, leadership skills and financial need. Graduates from Riverview, Spoto, East Bay and Lennard high schools have received scholarships.

On May 15, the club will host an awards luncheon at the Summerfield Crossings Golf Club's Doc's Grill for students and parents who are the recipients of the 2013 scholarships.

For information about sponsoring or donating prizes for the Country Shindig, contact Donna Fore at (813) 528-0902 or contact@pfautoglass.com. To learn more about the Riverview Woman's Club, visit riverviewwomansclub.org.
