Susan Bethoney Camp Scholarship Raffle - Win a Kindle Fire HD or Grill

Dear Philbrick Family,

As you know, our beloved paraprofessional Susan Bethoney passed away this winter. Susan was an integral part of the Philbrick community for 17 years, serving as a classroom paraprofessional, and working in the before-school and after-school program. Most days, Susan was at the Philbrick, patiently and lovingly working with kids for over ten hours! You may know that Susan also worked at the Boston Nature Center camp during vacation weeks and over the summer. She loved her neighborhood, her school, and our planet. It would be an understatement to say that she has been an incredibly important figure in the lives of our students.

To honor Susan’s dedication to nature and to kids, we are establishing a camp scholarship in her name, the Susan Bethoney Camp Scholarship. This scholarship will fund one Philbrick student to attend the BNC summer camp for one week each year. Funds will be held by the Boston Education Development Fund (BEDF). Our hope is to raise $10,000 for this fund to establish the scholarship.

We are asking you to consider how important Mrs. Bethoney’s presence was in the life of our school, and buy some raffle tickets for this ongoing memorial to Susan. Funds will endow the scholarship, and some will also be used for a plaque which will be placed near the garden outside the school. We are planning an event at school on the morning of June 22 to unveil the plaque and the scholarship. All contributions are tax-deductible.

You have a chance to win one of the following items:

1) Kindle Fire HD 6"
2) Fiesta LP Gas Grill 25000 BTU 390 sq. in.
3) $25 Roslindale ACE Hardware Gift Certificate

The drawing will take place on Fun Day, Friday June 19th. The drawing is online and winners do not need to be present to win. Winners will be posted online and contacted.

Direct contributions can be made at: http://give.philbrick.blue
