Giving back to the industry that has fed me well
  Re: (...)
Some of the members here participate in the fund raiser events we have during the year. I am posting links to the parts I was involved in over the years. You can explore from there if you would like. This is a group of industry people who spend their own money running around raising funds for the scholarship program. I am singling me out cause it is legal for me to do so. You can look around and find other members here that contribute as well.

This year we raised and gave away $12K to 12 very good student candidates. I hope you enjoy this as we do enjoy raising it and giving it away.

This is our press release for this years scholarships. It came out today as we finished selected the recipients Friday.
