2009 CG Education Foundation Scholarship Recipients

One of the ten raffle tickets purchased by Julia Ruccia (left) was the lucky winner in the Cedar Grove Education Foundation’s 2009 50/50 Spring Raffle. A Cedar Grove resident for over 53 years, she said, “I was shocked to get the phone call telling me that my ticket was a winner. I’m so excited! I always support CGEF fund-raisers, and this was a nice way to do it.” Presenting the check on behalf of the CGEF is Brenda Hendrickson, CGEF treasurer. The drawing was held on June 11, 2009, at the office of Brenda Hendrickson, CSA, 411 Pompton Avenue, in Cedar Grove. ”People seem to like our semiannual raffles,” explains Hendrickson. “So we will continue them. The next one will be available in the fall, and the drawing will take place in mid-December.”

Established in 2003, the Cedar Grove Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit organization. All the money raised and donations received by the CGEF are used to benefit Cedar Grove. Donations are always welcome. Checks can be made out to CGEF and mailed to PO Box 212, Cedar Grove, NJ 07009-0212.
