MEREDA’s Annual “Strikes for Scholars” Bowl-a-Thon Fundraiser Raises Scholarship Funds for Maine Students

MEREDA is thrilled to announce that its Annual Strikes for Scholars Bowl-a-Thon Fundraiser will once again enable the organization to donate a total of $15,000 towards scholarships to Maine students entering the building trades. $5,000 designated towards scholarships will be provided to each of the following: Associated General Contractors of Maine’s Education Foundation, Associated Building and Contractors of Maine, and the ACE Mentor Program of Maine.

MEREDA believes strongly in empowering Maine students on their journey towards careers that resonate with our core values of fostering responsible development and ownership of real estate across the state. The Strikes for Scholars fundraiser not only allows us to contribute towards education but also serves as a beacon of support for students venturing into the building trades industry. Every dollar raised at the event directly benefits students as they pursue their studies and gain valuable experience in the field. Thank you to everyone who participated and supported this important cause – together, we are making a meaningful difference in the lives of aspiring professionals in Maine!

MEREDA began its scholarship program for students in the building trades and professions 12 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 $181,000 to deserving Maine students. This includes this year’s donation of $15,000!

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 Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, Daigle Commercial Group, and SERVPRO, as well as our bowling teams, and those who purchased raffle tickets!
