The Scholarship Recipients

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue,

but the parent of all other virtues.

The Gregg F. Clyne Memorial Foundation

Announcement

While the fundraiser dinner galas, supported by friends, family and merchants for the past eight years, have been extremely successful and very rewarding, we have come to the painful decision to have the March 12, 2016 dinner gala be our last.

You may be wondering why we have come to this very difficult decision. Aside from the hard work to keep Gregg’s Foundation the very best it could possibly be, its success was due to the enormous generosity of our friends, family and merchants who have given with kind and loving hearts. We feel it is just too difficult to continue to put the financial burden on the same pool of people year in and year out. We could carry on with the fundraiser gala and hope that attendance continues to increase by 5-10% each year, but we know it will be the same majority that will be supporting the Foundation.

The main source of revenue for the scholarship awards come from the fundraiser dinner galas, but beginning in 2017 we are hoping that an annual appeal for help will allow us to raise money to continue Gregg’s mission. There is no doubt that Gregg’s Foundation will continue but the scholarship grant amount will be determined by donations received. Our current scholarship recipients will not be affected by this change. We are fully committed to honor the Foundation’s four-year promise to them.

Since the next fundraiser is on Gregg’s birthday and the 10 year anniversary of his passing shortly thereafter, please help us make March 12th the biggest and best celebration ever. Please reach out to all your friends and family to solicit help with increasing attendance and obtaining raffle prizes for our baskets. We are grateful to those who have already made prize commitments to us, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts

Gregg’s Foundation dinner/gala fundraiser never lost momentum since its inception, and we are hoping to end it on a huge high in March
