2018 Scholarship Fundraiser

The 8th Annual Pizza Shoppe Fundraiser was held on Tuesday June 12, 2018.   10% of your purchase price is being donated to scholarship funds held with Truman Heartland Community Foundation.  The first fund is the Eugene J. Rolfe Memorial Scholarship Fund, providing $1000 renewable scholarships to Engineering students.  The next fund is the Rolfe Bridge Fund.  This fund provides financial support to the WannaPlayBridge High School Residential Bridge Camp (when we manage to get enough students) and also provides $500 renewable scholarships to Kathy’s students who have at least 1 masterpoint upon graduating from high school and who continue to add to the masterpoint holding while in college. The Bridge Fund also provides scholarships to students winning at the local Unit 131 Spring Tournament when a student section is offered.You can read about these scholarships on this website or read and apply for them via the Truman Heartland Community Foundation.

Thank you to my supporters this year!  We had a great time!
