Kelly Night 2014
For the ninth consecutive year, in the spring 2014, the Kelly A. Bourbon Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser will commemorate the mentoring and community service of its namesake, our beloved family member and friend, Kelly.
While it has been almost nine years since a rare brain cancer took her at just the age of 40, Kelly’s work and spirit endure in an annual bequest of the scholarship awarded in her name. With it, a Noble High School graduate pursuing a post secondary education wins not only the dividend of hard work rewarded, but also a share of trust in the community which nurtured Kelly, and to which she wished to give back so much.
Please join us for the annual Kelly A. Bourbon Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser. As last year, instead of celebrating with a gala affair we will celebrate (Kelly Night 2014) by seeking your support through a donation to sustain the Kelly A. Bourbon Memorial Scholarship Fund.
We see the role of the Scholarship as becoming even more important in the years to come as students are increasingly strained to fund their education, often leaving school with crushing debt. We feel Scholarships such as Kelly’s can help lighten this burden for students and open more doors for their future.
If you wish to partner with the Bourbon Family in this undertaking, Please write your check to the Kelly A. Bourbon Memorial Scholarship Fund & send to William R. Bourbon PO Box 247 North Berwick, Maine 03906. We will ask for all donations for this years fundraiser to be sent by March 31, 2014 so as we can allocate resources for this years recipient.
Most importantly, we will continue to strive to achieve our goal of leveling the playing field of life through educational opportunities. Please join us in our quest. As allies in this enterprise, we can make a substantial difference in the lives of many young people.
Thank you in advance for your strong and generous commitment to this very significant endeavor.
