|4th Annual "Strikes for Scholars" Bowl-a-Thon Fundraising Event|
|MEREDA is now in the planning stages of organizing its 4th Annual "Strikes for Scholars" Bowl-a-Thon Fundraising Event with all the proceeds to fund scholarships for students pursuing studies in building trades, architecture, construction, engineering or a business program at a Maine Community College (MCCS). The previous "Strikes for Scholars" event, held last April, raised enough funds to provide a total of eight $1450 scholarships - one to each of the 7 schools in MCCS, as well as one to the College of Science, Technology & Health at the University of Southern Maine.
As an organization whose mission is to promote an environment for responsible development and ownership of real estate throughout the State, MEREDA wants to help support the next generation of professionals who will ultimately continue its work of advocating for responsible development. We hope to increase the funds raised at this year's event!
Our event will take place on May 5, 2016 at Bayside Bowl in Portland, ME. More information will be available in early February, but we hope you will contact us now to learn more about how to participate.
We invite you to organize a Team or consider becoming a Sponsor of this worthy cause!
