Update: 2017 Gary Bronson Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser!

At Dock Street 2017

Thank you to the more than 50 neighbors who came out to Dock Street on a sunny beautiful afternoon for our 10th Annual Gary Bronson Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser on April 23! We are additionally grateful to Mable Bakali and Andrew Kulasegram-Wilson, two of 2016’s TEN scholarship award recipients, who were able to join us and share the genuine impact these funds and community support have had on them and their studies.

These scholarship funds exemplify the spirit of neighbors helping neighbors! To date, this year’s mean donation is $90, and 77% percent of our donors live in Cedar Park with an additional 10% coming from other West Philadelphia neighborhoods. We have raised approximately 80% of the funds necessary to match last year’s award numbers and amounts. Donate to help us reach our goal! Donations of any amount are appreciated! Sponsor level donations with opportunities for recognition remain available.

The 2017 Gary Bronson Memorial Scholarship application will be posted online later this month to be due mid-June. Please check back with us and help to distribute the application widely to any neighborhood youth who may be eligible.

Finally, please mark your calendar for Friday, July 14th for the Gary Bronson Memorial Scholarship award ceremony in Cedar Park at 49th and Baltimore. The ceremony will take place during the 7:00 p.m. set break for the evening’s Cedar Park Live Jazz Friday concert. In addition to presenting the scholarship awards to recipients, we will also be recognizing our sponsor level donors. Want to add your name to the sponsor list below? Make a donation now.

2015 Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund Recipients with CPN Scholarship Committee Members

Six young Cedar Park residents’ return to school will be a little bit easier this fall thanks to the Cedar Park Neighbors’ Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund.  In addition to scholarships of over $1,000 each for educational expenses, the students will also receive mentoring, care packages, and networking opportunities from the fund throughout school year.

New to the Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund are two incoming college freshmen. Abdoulaye Dia is a 2015 graduate of the Charter High School for Architecture and Design (CHAD), and will be attending Denison University.  Dante Gibbons, also a 2015 CHAD graduate, will be attending Penn State University to study Geosciences.

Returning scholarship recipients include Ainye Clarke, who is entering her second year studying Psychology at Rosemont College.  Andrew Kulasegram-Wilson is in his third year at Drexel University where he studies Engineering.  Danielle Little attends Columbia College in Chicago, and is beginning her second year studying Arts Management with a Business and Entrepreneurship Major. Dung Nguyen is in her final year at Temple University’s School of Pharmacy.

These scholarships are possible through the generous support of the donors to the Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fundraiser.  Major sponsors of the April 2015 event were the Fleming Family Fund, Gregg & Rachel Mohrmann, Philadelphia Federal Credit Union, and Fred Wolfe Jr.  We thank those sponsors and all who contributed to making the event a huge success.

Cedar Park Neighbors is extremely proud of these active and dynamic students and their accomplishments. Please join us in congratulating these young members of our Cedar Park community, and wishing them the best in their studies.
