This is to announce the SIXTH ANNUAL Sarah’s Memorial Golf Tournament on September 29th at the Club at Viniterra to support a Scholarship Foundation in memory of my dear friend, Sarah Lindsey Gupta, who lost her courageous battle with cancer in 2011.
Together, Sarah and I attended New Kent County public schools, St. Peter’s Parish Church, and the College of William and Mary. We became the best of friends from Kindergarten through college and I will never forget her infectious smile and glowing personality that was so special to me and so many others.
In our 5 short years of conducting this golf tournament, we have made remarkable strides in building the program in Sarah’s memory. On our second year, we endowed a $50,000 scholarship at William & Mary and awarded our first scholarship from the college on the third year and every year since then.
Our fifth year was remarkable and because of your support we awarded seven scholarships to graduating seniors in New Kent. Combined to last year’s awards, we have now given a total of ten scholarships to New Kent students in a total amount of $13,000.
We want continue to grow the Foundation from your continuing participation in this annual golf tournament and from the wonderful gifts and donations that we have been so fortunate to receive each year. Obviously, we will continue to award the William and Mary scholarship each year, but we also want to continue to grow our scholarship program at the high school level.
To do so, I hope you can come out and join us on September 29th for a fun day of golf and fellowship. Even if you don’t golf, you can support the program in so many other ways. I invite you to contact me at 804-512-8150, or at firstname.lastname@example.org to help us celebrate the extraordinary life that Sarah lived and how these scholarships are benefitting others. We hope to hear from you soon!
