The Houston CPA Society's annual scholarship fundraising event broke records for both attendance and the amount raised.

The 2011 Scholarship Extravaganza, held February 18, raised over $300,000 and sold out more than 400 seats. This year's event honored husband-and-wife CPAs Roland Rodriguez and Linda Gonzalez, and was chaired by society board members Susan Sample and Mark Lee.

The money raised will be split between accounting scholarships and the CPAs Helping Schools program.
