MEREDA is thrilled to announce that it’s 2023 Strikes for Scholars Bowl-a-Thon Fundraiser was a great success! MEREDA is proud to support Maine students as they prepare for careers that aim to promote MEREDA’s mission of responsible development and ownership of real estate throughout Maine. MEREDA’s “Strikes for Scholars” fundraiser allows us to put our dollars to work for education and is just one way for us to lend a hand! All net proceeds from the event will support students pursuing studies and experience in the building trades.
MEREDA’s Board of Directors made the decision this year to provide $5,000 designated towards scholarships to each of the following: Associated General Contractors of Maine’s Education Foundation, Associated Building and Contractors of Maine, and the ACE Mentor Program of Maine.
MEREDA began its scholarship program for students in the building trades and professions 11 years ago and has continued to grow and support the program. Since the fundraiser’s inception, MEREDA is proud to have raised and donated over $166,000 to deserving Maine students. This includes this year’s donation of $15,000!
We are deeply appreciative of everyone involved in this event, sharing our goal of supporting Maine’s students pursuing education related to construction, design, engineering, and architecture. Our Sponsor Machias Savings Bank, as well as our bowling teams, and those who purchased raffle tickets!
Additional thanks to the folks at Port Property for allowing us the use of their Lancaster Street parking lot to help with the overflow of guests.
