TruHeart’s 1st Annual “JimBowl” Fundraiser
We are excited to announce our 1st annual JimBowl fundraiser, on October 27th, 2018—this will help fund our Jim’s Way Scholarship fund!
Jim’s Way is a scholarship fund honoring our mentor and friend, Jim “Jimbo” Snyder. He dedicated a good portion of his life helping and mentoring youth from Albany, NY's inner-city neighborhoods. He exposed many youths to various experiences and opportunities. He also helped some obtain scholarships and entry into college.
Jim is most known by his work facilitating a mentoring program which began initially as a part of "Big Brothers, Big Sisters", and would later transform into the "Siena Mentoring Program".
Sadly, he was diagnosed with cancer and would eventually leave us on February 28th, 2014. He left an indelible impact on the lives of all those he encountered. This scholarship is intended to carry on his legacy.
The funds raised will go towards reducing the costs of youth attending college, or trade school for the 2019-2020 year (and beyond).
So far, over the past two years, we have raised $2,100. Our goal is to $10,000 by the end of 2019.
Please help us achieve our goal by coming out to bowl, eat and have fun! 🎳
