Sara Jones Memorial Scholarship Fundraising Event – August 10, 2016
9:00PM – 11:00PM
On Oct. 12, 2015, SMPS Philadelphia member Sara Jones lost her battle with multiple myeloma. Sara will be remembered as a bright, engaging young woman with a kind and gentle nature. Though she endured many physical hardships, Sara viewed every challenge as an opportunity to excel and lead by example.
Her positive spirit guided both her professional career and her personal life. At Environetics Design, Inc., Sara was the Manager for Marketing & Business Development as well as an Associate and Shareholder. She was active in many professional organizations including SCUP and CREW, and served as a valued member of the SMPS Philadelphia Board for two years. Additionally, Sara contributed significant time, talent, and treasure to community and charitable organizations such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Ronald McDonald House, the March of Dimes, and the Gift of Life House. Those who knew Sara lost a trusted friend and colleague who inspired them daily. Sara earned her master’s degree in Professional Communication from La Salle University in 2006.
To honor Sara’s memory, Environetics Design, Inc. (EDI) established a scholarship in her name. The Sara Jones, ’06, Memorial Scholarship will provide financial assistance to a deserving and committed communication student at La Salle who, like Sara, has fought to overcome a hardship. EDI will match the first $25,000 contributed with an additional $25,000 to endow the scholarship and permanently honor Sara’s legacy at La Salle. Please consider participating in our event or making a gift today to help Sara’s story inspire others through education for years to come.
SMPS Philadelphia will donate $20 from every registration directly to The Sara Jones, ’06, Memorial Scholarship in each registrant’s honor. We will have computers available at the event should you like to make additional contribution to the fund personally or from your firm. Receipts for the full event cost will be given at registration, and an additional receipt for any additional scholarship donations will be sent directly from La Salle following the event. You or your firm’s name will be listed among the donors who supported the scholarship thanks to your registration for this event.
