Scholarship Association Gala March 7 At Waterview

From The Newtown Bee
The Betty Lou Osborne Memorial Scholarship Ball to benefit Newtown Scholarship Association will take place at The Waterview, Monroe, on March 7 starting at 6 pm.

Baseball legend Bobby Valentine, who is now the executive director of athletics at Sacred Heart University, will be the auctioneer for this year’s Betty Lou Osborne Memorial Scholarship Ball. The event is a fundraiser for Newtown Scholarship Association.

The event will feature dinner, dancing, raffles, and silent and live auctions. Special guest baseball legend Bobby Valentine will throw his support behind the NSA as the evening’s auctioneer.

Auction highlights will include a 3-night stay at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, including wine tastings and seminars; a three-night stay in the French Quarter of New Orleans; two packages for stays in New York City including hotel, theater, dinner, and transportation; a Kaoud Oriental  carpet and design consultation; and an Astronaut Adventure at Kennedy Space Center.

A longtime NSA board member, Betty Lou Osborne was a champion of Newtown’s young people. She was committed to ensuring that financial need would not stand in the way of a young person’s ability to go to college.

Thanks in large part to Betty Lou’s commitment and vision, NSA to date has provided over $4 million in financial assistance to help hundreds of students from Newtown attain a college education.

Tickets for the scholarship ball are $150 per person. The Waterview is at 215 Roosevelt Drive in Monroe, less than half a mile southeast of the Newtown town line.
