2020 Jaime Whelan Foundation Scholarship Fundraiser

Dear Friends and Family,
First and foremost, we hope you are all well during this very challenging time. Due to the ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19, we have decided to forgo an in-person JWF fundraiser this year. Each year, we rely so heavily on the hundreds of people in attendance as well as the generosity of small businesses in and around the community for our fundraising. Given both the health concerns associated with large gatherings and the current financial uncertainty facing many businesses and individuals due to Covid-19, we feel that it would be irresponsible to gather in-person in a large indoor setting and to ask for a significant level of commitment from our annual donors during this time.

Thank you to everyone that came out to celebrate our 12th Anniversary Annual Event.

Thanks to the success of the fundraiser, the Jaime Whelan Foundation was able to award $26,000 in scholarships in Jaime’s memory to four very impressive young ladies graduating Long Beach Catholic Regional School and heading to Sacred Heart Academy. We cannot overstate our gratitude to all of those who helped make the 11th Annual Jaime Whelan Foundation such an overwhelming success. We are proud of the foundation’s ability to impact the lives of these young ladies and keep Jaime’s memory alive and we appreciate your support in making this possible.
