THE BRONX - A Bronx high school student won a ticket to an event of a lifetime, but she needs help getting there.

Straight As at Bronx High School for Medical Science earned Marcela Pinos a seat at President Barrack Obama's inauguration in January through the National Society of High School Scholars. The junior says she can't afford the five-day conference in Washington, D.C. and is hoping people will donate money so she can go.

Pinos has taken to the Internet to raise the $3,195 she needs and has already started receiving donations.
