Please help me in my support of the George Snow Scholarship Fund, a Boca Raton based 501(c)(3) charitable organization providing college scholarships for young adults who otherwise would not be able to attend college. I have witnessed the personal and community benefits of higher education and it’s ability to transform lives for deserving young adults.
I have such a commitment to the mission of the George Snow Scholarship Fund that in addition to my personal financial support, I have agreed to do something that my family and close friends will recognize is a brand new experience for me – dancing in the Boca Ballroom Battle on August 20, 2010. Please support me in this endeavor by:
1. Clicking on the DONATE button and making a tax deductible contribution to the George Snow Scholarship Fund and indicating that the contribution is in support of my participation in the Ballroom Battle.
2. Sending a tax deductible contribution to the George Snow Scholarship Fund, 1860 N. Dixie Hwy., Boca Raton, Florida 33432 and noting that the contribution is in support of my participation in the Ballroom Battle.
3. Attending the dance competition on August 20, 2010 at the Boca Raton Resort and Club.
