Donations from the Liverpool Dollars for Scholars March Phone-a-thon are being deposited into our account, waiting to be distributed to this year's scholarship winners in June. The scholarship application deadline has passed and the Dollars for Scholars Selection Committee will meet later this spring to choose the winners and alternates based on student qualifications and specific criteria for each scholarship.
Scholarship donors, sponsors and winners will be invited to a reception on Thursday June 23, the next big event on our agenda. We are well into the planning stages for the reception, which gives us a chance to publicly acknowledge the people who donate the money, as well as the students who win the scholarships. We also thank the individuals and groups who donate money to sponsor the reception. Contact Board of Directors President John Cerrone, event chair, at 451-4653 if you would like to donate $100 and become a reception sponsor.
Plans are also in the works for our annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Tournament, our second largest fundraiser, which will be held at Foxfire in Baldwinsville on Monday June 27. Golfers and sponsors are needed for the event. Board members Donald Budmen and Sara Daggett are co-chairing the event. Student volunteers are needed to assist the adults who work at the tournament. Think about sponsoring a hole and/or putting together a foursome. The event costs $90 per person, which includes golf, continental breakfast, lunch and dinner. Extensive community participation makes the golf tournament a worthwhile fundraiser and an enjoyable social event. Contact Don at 652-1702 to sign up to play or to sponsor a hole.
We continue to discuss additional fundraisers and new ideas to encourage more LHS alumni, school district employees, and retirees to contribute to our worthwhile cause. As always, we appreciate the financial support received from the entire Liverpool community as we move closer to our goal of awarding a scholarship to every college bound Liverpool High School graduating senior.
