by Laura McHugh, Scholarship Committee Chair Join the Cedar Park Neighbors Scholarship Committee as We Brew Up Fun at DOCK STREET in Support of Our 3rd Annual Fundraiser for Youth Scholarships in Cedar Park!

Looking for something fun to do on a cold March afternoon?  Why not grab your friends and family and join us, the Cedar Park community, at our 3rd annual scholarships fundraiser at Dock Street Brewery and Restaurant, 701 S. 50th Street (at Baltimore Ave.) on Sunday, March 7, 2010 from 4-7 p.m.!  Tickets for this special event are just $35 and admission includes all you can eat and drink pizza and beer from 4-6 p.m. There will also be a cash bar for one hour, from 6-7 p.m. Buy tickets with Paypal (evite login required).

Our now annual fundraiser helps raise money every year to offer local students financial assistance to further their education after high school.  Scholarships are awarded yearly to high school graduates who live in the Cedar Park neighborhood and who have been accepted to an institution of higher education.

Over the last 21 years, Cedar Park Neighbors (CPN) has provided scholarships to local students to help defray the cost of books, fees, travel, or other needs. Established in 1988, the CPN Scholarship Program has made 116 awards for a total of $58,100 to more than 51 young neighbors. Scholarships for the 2010-2011 college academic year will amount to approximately $600/student and scholarships are renewable from year to year.

In addition to refreshments and entertainment, there will be the option to participate in a silent auction and a 50/50 drawing. This year’s silent auction items include tickets to Philadelphia area attractions, certificates to local businesses and restaurants and other fun, desirable items.  Come to help others and you may go away an even bigger winner!

CPN is a volunteer-driven organization and we must raise the additional funds each year in order to continue the operation of our Scholarship Program.  We need your help to support our young people today!
