The Sun letter to the editor: Thank you from alumni foundation

Editor:
The Hamburg Alumni Foundation would like to thank all players and sponsors for their participation in our 11th annual golf tournament.

On Aug. 26th, the foundation held our 11th annual golf tournament at Briarwood Country Cub. The event was attended by over 100 golfers. Included in the event were lunch, dinner, beverages, a putting contest, prizes and silent and Chinese auctions. This year’s tournament was very successful, raising close to $30,000, to help benefit the Hamburg School District.

Part of our success, this year, was due to contributions from our major sponsors. These included Cornerstone Capital, Eagle Systems, The Fisher Group, The Jacob’s Team, Matthew Buses, M&T Bank, Gordon Jones Associates, Chiacchia and Fleming, JESKAF Family Foundation and New Era. Along with our major sponsors, we had over 70 tee and gift sponsors.

The foundation was formed in 2001, to generate funds and secure resources for enrichment in the Hamburg Central School District. Currently, the foundation awards grants twice a year, totaling over $25,000. The grants are awarded to teachers in all of the schools.

Since inception, the foundation has given out grants and scholarships in excess of $175,000. On Sept. 5th, the foundation, with support of alumni, will unveil a new LED sign in front of the high school. This will replace the former sign, that has stood there for over 40 years.

The foundation will also host our annual wall of fame event at the Erie County Fair Grange Building on Sept. 28th.
