On May 2nd, MEREDA will host the first annual “Strikes for Scholars” Bowl-a-Thon Fundraising Event at Bayside Bowl in Portland. Thanks to our Bowling Teams and Sponsors, all proceeds will fund scholarships through the ACE Mentor Program (www.acementor.org) for students pursuing studies in architecture, construction, or engineering.
As an organization whose mission is to promote an environment for responsible development and ownership of real estate throughout the State, MEREDA wants to help support the next generation of professionals who will ultimately continue its work of advocating for responsible development.
In addition to bowling, the event includes a silent auction including a special surprise sports celebrity guest, with all proceeds to benefit the MEREDA scholarship fund.
