Sound Beach, NY - July 14, 2015 - On Sunday, July 12, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker congratulated the recipients of the Sound Beach Civic Association’s annual scholarships. The scholarships were awarded to Megan McCarthy and Nicole Berg at the Scholarship Fund Food Fair and Silent Auction held at the Sound Beach Fire Department. For the past six years, the civic association has awarded two $1,000 scholarships to two students who reside in Sound Beach.
“It is amazing to see what can be accomplished when a community’s residents and businesses work together,” said Legislator Anker. “I’d like to extend my thanks to the many who donated to the scholarship fund, and to the Sound Beach Civic Association for making the scholarships possible. I hope this annual event will continue for many years to come.”
The scholarships and event are made possible by the donations of many local residents and businesses of Sound Beach. Many Sound Beach restaurants donated signature dishes, and many local businesses offered prizes for the auction. Food and fun were shared by all during the festivities.
