Sponsored Post: 1st Annual Reis Family Memorial Casino Night on Saturday, November 9th!

Dear Friends; 
On May 19th, 2008 tragedy struck close to home for most of us when the Reis family lost their lives too soon. A memorial scholarship fund was set up in the family’s name for remembrance that is awarded to a graduating Byron-Bergen Student each year. Unfortunately funds have diminished and with this night we plan to contribute to the scholarship so their memory can live on and continue to impact future generations in the Byron-Bergen School District. 

Our 1st Annual Reis Memorial event will have guests enjoying each others company in remembrance and a unique and exciting casino experience. At the end of the evening each individual’s chips can be “cashed” in for tickets to our Chinese auction and a chance to win an assortment of valuable prizes. Space is limited and tickets will sell out quickly! 

You can make a difference. 
Your sponsorship of, or prize donation to this event, will help bring us one step closer to achieving our goal of ensuring that college scholarships will continue in remembrance of the Reis Family. If you would like more information about the event, please contact Brendan Lougheed, Event Coordinator at (585) 721-8955 or by e-mail at loughebf@gmail.com. 

Thank you for your support in keeping their memory alive by impacting the future Byron-Bergen scholarship recipient(s).
