Great Falls Friends & Neighbors Scholarship Fund

On Friday, September 13, GFFN began another year at their annual “kick-off” luncheon held at Riverbend Country Club.  It was a wonderful showcase for the GFFN Scholarship Fund and its recent recipients.  Mary Lou Christy, the new Scholarship President, expressed gratitude toward Missy and Erin, and their respective boards, for fostering a terrific spirit of cooperation and support of our scholarship efforts. 

Mary Lou welcomed the 2019-2020 Scholarship Fund board:  Christie Lavin, Candace Bovee, Lissa Carter, Adrienne West, and Kathryn Tucker Rutkowski. 

Approximately 60 ladies attended the luncheon as well as reporters from The Great Falls Connection and The Sun Gazette.  Please read their articles on the event!  A 50/50 raffle was held by the Philanthropy group resulting in sales of $696 of which theygraciously donated 50% to the GFFN Scholarship Fund.  A great way to start out our year!

This year, the Fund awarded 12 scholarships (up from 7 in previous years) totaling $17,500.  “We could not have increased the number of scholarships without the commitment and support of GFFN,” Mary Lou reiterated.  GFFN membership strongly supported our Spring Tea fundraiser, held in April 2019, from which we raised over $9,000 for scholarships.  For a more detailed update on the Scholarship Fund click here
