We hope that you enjoyed your summer and that you are doing
well. It is that time of year when we think of children returning
to school, tuition payments and the ever favorite Lisa Sechrist
This year we are still sending young women off to school
and paying tuition but we have decided to forego the annual
tournament. Typically we grant one full scholarship per year
and several other partial awards. We hope to continue this
practice and ask for your help to enable us to continue this
We have polled our trade partners and all have agreed that
everyone is busily attempting to make our business plans
and making the necessary adjustments to cope with today’s
economic environment. Our trade partners further agreed that
they would continue their support efforts for the foundation
through contributions in lieu of the tournament participation.
We invite you to join them.
Since our inception we have awarded almost $325,000 in full
or partial scholarships assisting over 80 young women in
their pursuit of an education. We have seen women become
accountants, systems analysts, social workers, nurses, translators,
journalists and a degree in astrophysics. Our current seniors
will obtain degrees in marine biology, chemistry, marketing,
art and music. Almost all of our winners have attended school
on the East Coast with most of them attending Virginia schools.
We ask that send your contribution in the form of a check
made payable to the Lisa Sechrist Memorial Foundation.
We appreciate your past support and look forward to a great
tournament in 2008! Please send all requests for further
information to dharper@BrookfieldHomes.com.
