The Power Through It Committee has commenced effort in support of our Dollars for Scholars Campaign. We were blessed with outstanding results from last year’s outing at Sharkey’s, enabling us to award four scholarships to the CNS Class of 2014. We are changing it up this year with a Memorial Golf Tournament scheduled for August 1st at Northern Pines in Cicero, with proceeds going to four more scholarships for the CNS Class of 2015.
The atmosphere will be easy going and fun-filled. All are welcome to join the Captain and Crew format. Non-golfers are encouraged to join for dinner only. The point is to get together to honor Sara and others from the Class of ’83 that left us too soon. It will be a great opportunity to catch up, support each other and renew friendships. As Sara knew, family and friends sustain us and help us to Power Through life.

In 2014 The Sara Percival-Valenti Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in honor of our beautiful friend Sara, and other classmates who left us too soon. Each year members of the Cicero High School Class of ’83, along with friends and family, come together to raise money allowing us to offer scholarship awards to eligible CNS High School students via Dollars-for-Scholars.
Each year the The Sara Percival-Valenti Memorial Scholarship Fund raises money for both students pursuing a degree in Occupational Therapy, like Sara, as well as other fields as they continue their college education. Through our fundraising efforts, we are helping young adults get an education that will enable them to “Power Through” to the next stage of their lives!
Our last fundraising efforts in March, 2014 enabled us to provide four scholarship awards to the C-NS graduation class of 2014, exceeding our initial goal of two scholarships! This year, we look forward to our upcoming Golf Tournament Fundraiser at Northern Pines in Cicero to be held on August 1st.
Our hope is to continue to raise money in Sara’s name, and with the help of donations from supporters, we will successfully see young adults from our hometown further their education and live life to the fullest, like Sara always did!
