|The Firefighter Christopher Santora Educational Scholarship Fund Dinner Dance
June 11, 2010
Our Annual Dinner Dance will be held on Friday, June 11th, 2010 at Riccardo's by the Bridge in Astoria, Queens. Tickets and Donations can be handled at our website, www.christophersantora.com/dinnerdance and
www.christophersantora.com/site/donations respectively. All are welcome to attend!
The Firefighter Christopher Santora Educational Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to graduating Elementary, Middle and High School students who show a passion for History and prove that passion by winning our Annual Essay Contest. We are so proud to support their continued education.
Your donations and support of our events and Annual Journal are key in our ability to continue to honor these students, and in doing so, honor the memory of our son, Christopher, who was a teacher, a Firefighter, a lover of history, and one of the 343 members of the FDNY to perish on 9/11.
We hope to make this year the most successful yet, and are again coming to you, our friends, for help. Through your donations and ticket purchases, we are able to provide not only scholarships, but also school supplies, grants and sponsorships. Our first scholarship recipients have already graduated college and are pursuing higher and advanced education opportunities. We are honored to have played an important part in helping them to achieve those goals, and we know that we couldn't help them if you did not help us.
We thank you for past help, and hope that you will honor us with your continued support.
Maureen & Deputy Chief Al Santora
