SKAL International Boston – June 4, update
Happy June! First off I wanted to thank Adam Sperling and the entire staff of the Hotel Commonwealth for hosting the May luncheon at Island Creek Oyster Bar. The venue, service and food were fantastic. I also want to once again congratulate Priscilla Lee who joins Robin Brewster, Carmen Dongo, and Amanda Soucy as the 4th recipient of the Kieth Staples Scholarship Award. Priscilla was the first recipient to be awarded the $2500.00 amount and it could not have been given to a nicer young lady. Thanks also to Robyn Culbertson for continuing to administer the fund and working with the selection committee to find such worthy winners.
We had 80 guests at the May luncheon and once again your generosity is greatly appreciated. Several members took advantage of our newest technological improvement and added the purchase of raffle tickets to the on line registration fee, those tickets were waiting for you when you checked in. A few more used their credit cards on site to buy tickets and support the club. Regardless of how you contributed, together we raised another $810.00 for the May raffle. THANK YOU!
