Yacht club hosts college scholarship spaghetti night fundraiser on Saturday, April 29
On Saturday, April 29 from 7-10 p.m., the Croton Yacht Club will be sponsoring its annual College Scholarship fund raising event. The event will include an all-you-can-eat pasta night, with various pasta dishes, salad, coffee and dessert. A silent auction will be conducted during the evening as well as a 50-50 fund raising raffle. A donation of $20 for adults, $10 for teens is requested. Children 12 and under are free. All net proceeds will go to the Croton Yacht Club College Scholarship Fund.
The mission of the scholarship grant is to promote studies in the marine, maritime, environmental science and/or environmental engineering fields; to cultivate future local environmental leaders and advocates; to develop future stewards of local marine resources and to enhance, promote and protect local river related recreational resources.
A one-time grant totaling $2,000 will be awarded to a 2017 Croton-Harmon High School graduate who is pursuing undergraduate college accredited courses in the aforementioned fields of study. Including this year, the Yacht Club will have awarded $11,000 in grants since the scholarship’s inception in 2011.
CHHS seniors interested in applying for this scholarship grant should inquire at the Croton-Harmon High School guidance department for details.
If you would like to donate an item for the silent auction or if you would like to donate to the scholarship fund directly, please contact Dennis Kooney at email@example.com or call 914-271-6384.
