The Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund is pleased to announce its 2013 Reach for the Stars Celebration Dinner on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston. This year we’ll answer the question “Where Are They Now?” as we feature the success of our scholars over the last 23 years. Former U.S. Secretary of Education, Dr. Rod Paige and Stephanie Nellons Paige are our Honorary Chairs, and we will acknowledge our Honorees, Tiffany and Rick Smith, General Manager of the Houston Texans, for their unwavering support of the LLSF through the years. The reception begins at 6:30 pm followed by dinner and the program at 7:30 pm .
The Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund was founded in 1991 to encourage and support Houston area youth from challenging backgrounds who have a desire to go to college. Since its inception, the Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $3 million to more than 300 students, most of whom would have been overlooked by other scholarship funds. With the hope, college readiness training, and financial support provided by the LLSF, 85% have graduated or are currently pursuing a college degree.
To purchase a table or tickets, call 713-942-5805, ext. 281. Please join us as we celebrate our scholars who are now contributing to our community, and honor those who help make it all possible.
