MEREDA’s Annual “Strikes for Scholars” Bowl-a-Thon Fundraiser Raises Funds for Scholarships for Maine Students
MEREDA is thrilled to announce that it’s 2022 Strikes for Scholars Bowl-a-Thon Fundraiser was a great success! This year we will be making donations to be used for student scholarships to both the ACE Mentor Program of Maine as well as to the Associated General Contractors of Maine’s Education Foundation.
MEREDA began its scholarship program for students in the building trades and professions 10 years ago and has continued to grow and support the program. Since the fundraiser’s inception, MEREDA is proud to have raised and donated over $151,000 to deserving Maine students. This includes this year’s donation of $18,000!
We are deeply appreciative of everyone involved in this event, sharing our goal of supporting Maine’s students pursuing education related to construction, design, engineering, and architecture. Our Sponsors AAA Energy Service Co. & Machias Savings Bank, as well as our bowling teams, and those who purchased raffle tickets!
Additional thanks to the folks at Boulos Asset Management for allowing us the use of their Lancaster Street parking lot to help with the overflow of guests, and to Malone Commercial Brokers, for donating funds from their MCB4ME Campaign to Strikes for Scholars! Without their involvement, these substantial donations would not be possible.
