The Glen Cove Council of PTAs held its Annual Community Scholarship Fund Event at the Swan Club earlier this spring. This year the PTA Council introduced its first annual Diamond Club to honor dynamic individuals who have brought a positive effect on the school community. Honorees are selected from PTA units’ members, parents, school volunteers, administrators, faculty and staff. The first Diamond Club inductees are Nomi Rosen, Dr. Michael Israel, Rosemarie Sekelsky, Brittney Frank Rifkind, Mary Murphy and Suzanne Anderson.
This year the event enjoyed a delightful luncheon with entertainment provided by the very talented and award winning Glen Cove High School Jazz Band. The event raises funds for deserving graduating seniors from the class of 2014 through the Glen Cove Community Scholarship
If not for the tireless work of the council and many other PTA members, yet, more importantly the support from local merchants and corporate sponsors,the council would not have been able to create the many fabulous raffle baskets
and exciting grand prizes. They extend a big thank you to all who supported the fundraiser by buying raffle tickets, donating items or donating time.
“We are always filled with gratitude as our community continues to come out to support this fine cause,” said the council representatives. “Your efforts truly go directly to the students who will benefit from scholarships supported by this yearly event.”
