HIDALGO - There are hundreds of ways to raise money for scholarships and last night one organization did it with music at the STARS Scholarship Fund concert.
Thousands of people filled the stands at State Farm arena as they enjoyed music from country singers Blake Shelton and Jerrod Neimann.
This fundraising concert collects money for local scholarships.
"This money goes to students from this location, they can go anywhere they want in the united states, but they have to be from South Texas," said Val La Mantia Peisin, L&F Distributors.
Before the concert, STARS held a fundraising dinner and auction.
To date they have raised more than 17 million dollars.
Local officials said it's a program that benefits to the community in so many ways.
