Grand Junction, Colo (KKCO) --- The Mesa County Partners held their annual Partners Superstars fundraiser at Lincoln Park.
Junior partners and their mentors teamed up to raise money for Partners programs and Director, Joe Higgins, said he is confident they will raise $45,000 by the end of their fundraising efforts.
The Partners connect at risk youth with mentors to give them the support they may be lacking at home and to get them active and away from trouble.
Currently, 90 kids are on a waiting list to get a mentor and Higgins said he encourages people to volunteer their time for this great cause.
