PORTLAND, June 14, 2021 – Although the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) wasn’t able to host its “Strikes for Scholars” Bowl-a-Thon Fundraising Event again this year due to the pandemic, we instead opted for a Virtual Trivia Night and our members turned out once again to support the students! The event consisted of 3 rounds of questions from Current Events to Pop Culture, to a “Name that Tune” category, followed by team networking. Prizes were awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place winners.
We are pleased to announce that MEREDA will be providing 7 $1250 scholarships to the Maine Community College System (MCCS), as well as 1 $1250 scholarship to the College of Science, Technology & Health at the University of Southern Maine. Thank you, MEREDA Members!
MEREDA began its scholarship program for students in the building trades and professions 9 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 $133,000 in scholarships helping over 103 Maine students.
Many thanks to our Sponsors AAA Energy Service Co., Bangor Savings Bank, & Machias Savings Bank, as well as to our twenty trivia teams!! Without their involvement, these substantial donations would not be possible.
