Liverpool DFS Thanks the Community

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

With a successful ninth annual Bowl-a-thon behind us, we can turn our attention to other events.  Special thank you to Board member Rob Just, who chaired the Bowl-a-thon; sub-committee members John Cerrone, Nancy Dutelle, Barbara Martens, Ann Trojnar, and Joe Trojnar; Liverpool High School teacher Alan Pascale; and others who solicited funds from sponsors and gifts from donors, attended the event, handled publicity, and took pictures.  We owe our gratitude to the students , teachers, administrators and other adults who bowled and the members of the community who made pledges to support the bowlers.

We acknowledge Flamingo Bowl for hosting the event and the following individuals and businesses for sponsoring a lane at the Bowl-a-thon:  Ascioti’s To Go; Boom Babies, Inc.; Ferrara, Fiorenza, Larrison, Barrett & Reitz, P.C.; Holiday Ice; Lockheed Martin Employees’ Federated Fund; and Solvay Bank. 

Seneca Savings sponsored three lanes, enough to award a scholarship in their name.

We are also grateful to Antonio’s Pizza; Bagelicious; Bayberry Fish Cove; Chuckleberries; Dunkin’ Donuts; Edge Federal Credit Union; Euforium Hair Salon; Francesca’s Pizza and Italian Kitchen; Gold’s Gym; Greek Peak Mountain Resort; Home Café, Inc.; Laser Solutions; Lockheed Martin Employees’ Federated Fund; Miracle Nails; Salsarita’s Fresh Cantina; Santangelo’s Restaurant; Shear Forte; Simpatico’s Salon and Spa; Starbucks; Toggenburg Mountain Sports Center; and WB Mason for donating gift baskets, ski passes, gift cards, and other prizes for participants, winning bowlers, and top fund-raisers.  Please support the businesses that support us in our quest for scholarship money.

All participants were eligible to win gift certificates and other prizes.  Special prizes were awarded to Ryan Lee, the winning student bowler; Ryan Turner, top student fund-raiser; and Frank DeMauro, top adult bowler.  An enthusiastic group of 84 bowlers – 46 students and 38 teachers/administrators/community members – raised enough money for several scholarships to be awarded to members of the Liverpool High School Class of 2015.

As always, we are grateful for the outpouring of support from the school district and the greater Liverpool community for helping us move closer toward our goal of awarding a scholarship to every eligible college bound senior who applies.  Thank you!

Sincerely,

Liverpool Dollars for Scholars Board of Directors
