Thank you to all who have donated to the Yellow Rose Scholarship. We are fast approaching the initial goal of $3000.
Once we reach this goal, additional donations will be gratefully accepted to help cover the costs of the June 1st Celebration of Life for Molly Kurvink, the inaugural event for the Yellow Rose Scholarship.
Our long-term goal is to reach $10,000, to build the Scholarship fund to the point at which it will become self-sufficient, servicing a yearly scholarship which can be offered in perpetuity, thus securing a long term legacy of Molly’s tremendous contributions to the Guelph Community Boating Club and the training and development of young sailors.
We appreciate your contributions. Thank you.______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
