VIXENS HELPING VIXENS

Sarah Betz Bucciero needs your help to fund the SBC scholarship in memory of her son Carter.

“Carter’s Scholarship Update: I officially learned today that there is approximately $20k in the scholarship and so I need to raise about $30k more to have it endowed at the $50k level. This scholarship will go to any student directly impacted by cancer (self, sibling, or parent). I will be donating all of my commissions from Rodan and Fields sales this year to the scholarship”

You can help Sarah by purchasing Rodan and Fields items from her.

From John Edward Ashbrook in regards to his history class traveling to Europe this summer.

Hello everyone. I have some current students who want to attend my summer abroad course on the world wars and the Holocaust. We will be visiting battlefields in France, Belgium, Italy, and Poland, and Dachau, Majdanek, and Auschwitz between June 6 and July 3. The problem is lack of funding. I suggested they speak with the financial aid office first. But if they cannot get funding in that way, does anyone in this group have suggestions about how they could raise the money by March 10 or so? The trip per student is $3000. Airfare is separate but running about $1200. SBC alumna and friends pay $3500. Any ideas or advice is much appreciated! Thanks, John Ashbrook, SBC HISTORY


 THE CHARITABLE VIXEN

Kari Shipley ’76 has a request to all alumnae:  Next time you buy water in bottles consider saving the bottle caps for CAPS OF LOVE, an American charity that funds children’s wheelchairs.  Please remember that the bottle caps must be separated by grade. Thank you!
