Dear Friends and Colleagues,
As many of you know, Lisa Shauger and I founded the Timothy Groves Memorial Scholarship with the West Orange Education Foundation in 2014 after our dear friend, former West Orange police officer Timothy Groves, passed away from cancer. During his lifetime, Officer Groves dedicated himself not only to his job, but also to the West Orange community and, in particular, its youth. It was fitting, then, to keep Officer Groves’ memory alive through a scholarship that helps students who are as hardworking and community-minded as he was.
We are doing something special this holiday season to raise money for the Timothy Groves Memorial Scholarship. In conjunction with the West Orange Education Foundation (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity), we are hosting a raffle to benefit the scholarship, with 100% of the raffle ticket proceeds going directly to the Timothy Groves Memorial Scholarship.
Raffle tickets are just $20 apiece, with lots of great prizes available:
- 2 Platinum Lounge tickets to Elton John (with VIP parking and all-inclusive food and drink)
- 2 Lower Level tickets to New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers (with parking pass)
- 2 Lower Level tickets to Disney on Ice (with parking pass)
- 2 Lower Level tickets to Seton Hall Basketball (with parking pass)
- 2 Lower Level tickets to Monster Jam (with parking pass)
I truly hope that we can count on your generous support to help us raise funds for the scholarship, which has been able to provide need-based financial scholarships to 25 remarkable students since its inception.
To be entered in the raffle, please contact Lisa Elam at The Shauger Group (973-676-2100 or email@example.com). Raffle tickets will be issued to those who enter the raffle, and raffle winners will be drawn and announced at 12pm on Sunday, December 23, at West Orange’s Our Lady of Lourdes R. C. Church.
Please let me know if we can depend on you to support this wonderful cause. If you have any questions about the fundraiser, please feel free to let me know, and please see the attached flyer for additional details.
The raffle prizes will make perfect gifts for the holidays, so don't miss your chance to win a great prize while also supporting a fantastic cause!
