Dear Sponsor

 

            The Community Scholarship Foundation of Canon-McMillan, Dollars for Scholars is a locally operated and supported non-profit, tax exempt scholarship foundation with a tax ID (46-5118613) that has been in existence for 29 years.  Operated by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, its purpose is to expand access to educational opportunities by involving and assisting our community in the support of students and in the encouragement of educational achievement.  The foundation is a chapter affiliate of Scholarship America, a nationally recognized non-profit student aid service organization.  The chapter's initial place of business is Canon-McMillan Senior High School 314 Elm Street Extension Canonsburg, PA 15317.  Each year our community is invited to demonstrate their support for local students by supporting our fundraising activities, sponsoring scholarships and generous monetary support of local businesses, service organizations and individuals or groups.

 

            This year will be the 16th year of the Jack-O-Lantern Jog 5K Run and Skeleton Stroll sponsored by the foundation.  This is a family oriented event with costumes, awards, basket raffle, food and a lot of fun.  This is our biggest fundraiser.  We have set a goal this year to raise $30,000 with your help we can achieve this goal.  Approximately 350 individuals, young and old, are anticipated this year.  Products donated are used as participant prizes and/or basket raffle prizes.  Monetary donations of less than $500 are combined to form scholarships.  Donations of $500, $1,000 or more will be presented in your name at the annual scholarship banquet in May.  This year the foundation will award approximately $78,000 in scholarships to graduating Canon-McMillan students at the May 2020.  The Jack-O-Lantern Jog contribution is $28,000.   

 

            This year the Jog will be held on Saturday, October 31, 2020.  We are excited to be holding the jog once again at the Canon-McMillan Senior High School on Elm Street Ext., Canonsburg, PA.  The 5K race will begin at 9:00 a.m. and the Skeleton Stroll at 9:15 a.m.  We will have plenty of parking and a larger area indoors for runners, spectators and sponsors.  All attendees will have plenty of opportunity to purchase and deposit their tickets for the Raffle Basket and 50/50 drawing. Additional tickets (25 tickets for $10.00 or 75 tickets for $20.00) can be purchased at the event, but must be deposited by 9:15 a.m.

 

            You can show your support one of three ways:  a Corporate Sponsorship, a Personal or Group Sponsorship, and Product and/or Raffle Basket donation.  Kindly take a few minutes to review the enclosed information and consider making a donation.  No donation is too small and every donation helps.  All donations must be received by September 30, 2020. 

 

            Thank you in advance for your consideration of this worthwhile event.  Any questions should be directed to Jill Sabol at 724-575-8933 or email csfcm13@gmail.com

 

Yours truly,
