The Sandbox Foundation held its Third Annual Spring Fundraiser as a Wine & Charcuterie party. Guests were asked to bring two bottles of wine to the event. One bottle was opened and served, while the other was sold in a silent auction. Record contributions were received, helping the foundation to fund six scholarship awards for 2018.
Three Continuing Scholarships were announced, with all of the recipients on hand to receive their awards. Winners of the 2018 Continuing Scholarships are: Jared Newton, Austen Malczewski and Adam Walters.
The 2018 Wayne Scholarship recipient was announced as: Noah Schultz, a graduate of De La Salle, who is headed to Western Michigan. Noah could not be present due to a (prom) date with a girl. Good choice Noah. We’ll be certain to catch up with you later.
The Sandbox Foundation held its second annual fundraiser on Friday, May 12th. The event was a “Wine and Cheese Gathering”, with guests donating two bottles of wine. The first bottle was uncorked and served. The second bottle was sold at silent auction.
