Hero’s… Scholarships… Kindness… PASS it ON!…

Hey everybody!

A few weeks ago I introduced you to my friend Michele Petrillo of Baskets-n-Beyond, like so many of you out there, Michele is a hero…Michele spearheads a wonderful Alumni Scholarship fund for Ridgefield Memorial High School in Ridgefield, NJ.

On September 17, 2011 the RMHS Alumni Scholarship Fund will be doing a comedy show/beefsteak dinner fundraiser at the Ridgefield Community Center in Ridgefield NJ from 7pm-11pm.  Cost will be $45 per ticket. All the money raised will go towards scholarships for the RMHS class of 2012.  The scholarship Fund is desperate need of raffle gifts and will accept anything no matter how big or how small.  Gift Certificates to a web site, signed copies of a book someone wrote, merchandise you cant move any longer in your store,  gift cards, electronics, hotel stays, any type of promotional materials that you would like to raffle off to help promote your company.  Water, Soda and dessert needed for the event also. Please help them help these kids.  The non profit organization was founded in 2009 and has awarded 13 scholarships to the class of 2010 and 12 scholarships to the class of 2011.  Their only criteria is if the child has a desire to continue their education whether in a 2 year school, trade school or 4 year college.  Scholarships are awarded to the child with the worst financial hardships. The fund hates to turn anyone down but  tries to give to the neediest of children.

Please help any raffle donation is deeply appreciated or if you want to make a donation you can via a credit card on their website www.rmhsalumnischolarshipfund.com
