The Estelle R Ford Future Nurses Scholarship Fund Hosts Benefit Festival
TEMPLETON, MA - The Estelle R. Ford Future Nurses Scholarship Fund is hosting its 2nd Annual Music & Arts festival at the Templeton Fish & Game Club on July 21, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Each year we hold our annual Music and Art Festival to raise funds for the scholarship fund to support nursing students. Admission is free for the Art Festival and we are suggesting a $10 donation to attend the benefit concert during the evening. There also is music throughout the day!
“This is our major fundraiser and we have been blessed with the support of many volunteers, artists, and musicians for this event.” said Marjorie Fischer, Co-Chair for the Estelle R. Ford Future Nurses Fund. “We are extremely excited to encourage unity and engagement within our community, in collaboration with a variety of local participants.”
All of the proceeds will go to the Estelle R. Ford Future Nurses Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides annual community-service-based scholarships to nursing students. Established in 2016 by John Ford and Marjorie Fischer, Estelle’s children award scholarships to qualified applicants who are 2nd, 3rd or 4th year students and either from the Central Mass area or who plan on serving the Central New England community upon graduation.
Some of the fund friends who plan to participate in the festival include East of the Mountain Crafts, Fiber Frolic, Gary’s Country Baskets, Hawaiian Shaved Ice, Jean Christine Crafts, Milioto Concessions, Paulmark Greeting Card Company, Michael Wolski Fine Arts, Ron Woroski Photography, Spray Don, and more. Attendees will also enjoy performances from Michael McDermott, Jesse Terry, Connor Garvey and Daniel Chauvin and other local musicians. We also added a variety of food trucks and so much more! We have “Pay It Forward” vendors such as Team Unstoppable, Samaritan’s Purse and J.M. Sheridan, all of which stand behind noble causes and assist others in raising awareness for people with autism, physical disabilities, children in need to name just a few. We are absolutely honored to work with such caring people who genuinely enjoy giving back to our communities and to use our festival platform to further their causes is a great privilege.
The Estelle R. Ford Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and is completely dependent on donations and volunteers. To volunteer for the annual festival, apply here: https://bit.ly/2FsXtHd.
