Over the course of the Newtown Scholarship Association’s 79 year history we have held a number of different fundraisers which has allowed us to provide more then $4 million in financial aid through need based scholarships. You may have participated in our annual golf fundraiser or attended one of our galas. This year we thought let’s forget the tuxedos and high heels and break out our jeans and cowboy boots and celebrate Beer, Bourbon and BBQ.
Please join us on www.newtownscholarship.org/
We will feature free craft beer tasting from Two Roads Brewery and free bourbon tasting from Hartley and Parker. For those interested in another kind of bar, The Creamery will be donating their ice cream for our “sundae bar”. In addition, there will be live auction items including a Bourbon Tasting Trip to Kentucky and a Sam Adams brewery tour in Boston. We will also have a wonderful weekend in New York city with an overnight stay including a broadway play and dinner. Our silent auction items will feature “Around Newtown Basket”, Lady Luck Lottery, Beer and Bourbon baskets and select designer handbags just to name a few. To get your energy level up for all this fundraising we will have line dancing and the live band Whiskey and Rye.
This year the NSA awarded more then $430,000 to 175 deserving students helping make the dream of a college degree a reality for hundreds of young people in Newtown. The scholarships are funded through the generous donations of local businesses and individuals, and through named memorial and honorary scholarships. In addition to supporting a worthy cause, the BBQ will pay tribute to one of the NSA’s most dedicated and enthusiastic supporters. A woman who believed that all students have the right to a secondary education regardless of financial circumstances - the late Betty Lou Osborne. We believe she would appreciate our Party with a Purpose!
We hope you will join us for an evening of fun, food, dancing and spirits!
