Lincoln-Sudbury Scholarship Fund “Dollars for Scholars” (LSSF) Is Holding Their Annual Appeal!!

Lincoln-Sudbury Scholarship Fund Dollars for Scholars (LSSF). LSSF is launching its annual fundraising No-Show campaign today and welcomes all community support. Lincoln Sudbury Scholarship Fund Dollars for Scholars (LSSF) announces its “No-Show” Fall Symphony. This is LSSF’s 2nd annual “No-Show” fundraising event. The “No-Show” Fall Symphony allows Lincoln and Sudbury community members to lend their financial support to acknowledge students in their own backyard who have excelled academically, made strides athletically, and have contributed through community service. Donors’ generous contributions are made while they enjoy the company of their own family and friends in their own home. This annual fundraiser requires no expensive paper invitations, no pricey dresses to be bought, no babysitters to be secured, or precious time to be spent. Supporters’ valued time is theirs and the donations they make benefit the students of LSRHS.

Last year’s “No-Show” donations helped to provide 36 LSSF Dollars for Scholars Scholarships to the following students in our community.

Tax deductible donations can be made by visiting the LSSF website at lincoln-sudbury.dollarsforscholars.org or by sending donations to: LSSF c/o LSRHS, 390 Lincoln Rd, Sudbury, MA 01776, Attn: Leanne Cordischi.

GetLocaLMA.com has joined forces with the Sudbury Chamber of Commerce to help raise funds for another successful Sudbury Fair!!

GetLocaLMA.com has joined forces with the Sudbury Chamber of Commerce to help raise funds for another successful Sudbury Fair. We had over 3,000 residents attend the 375 Grange Fair and 10,000 expected for LS Field day. With the support of local businesses we can make this an ANNUAL event for Sudbury residents, which in turn will create huge exposure for Sudbury businesses that donate to the events. Exposure how you ask? Those that support our efforts will have first option to participate at the events by means of a booth to exhibit their companies, logos on our posters and flyers and promotional materials for the events, logos on our Sudbury newsletters leading up to events, ads on our website that have the event information and resident registrations for the events. (the higher your level of support, the greater your town exposure) Support something to help your business GROW! Residents are asking us to PLAN this event. Our advertisers in the 375 magazine generated MORE exposure and company traffic than ever before. With your donation you get an ad (designed for FREE) in our NEXT Shop Local magazine coming out next month. We are excited to have you be a part of helping us bring our community together!

This is the link to our 375 online digital magazine. Our new Sudbury Shop Local magazine will also go to our 6,000 Sudbury resident database…

AND will be distributed FREE at sudbury doctors offices, chiropractor offices, dentists, coffee shops, MANY Sudbury stores and locations.. We are planning on putting local residents in pictures, on the cover as well, to prompt distribution of the magazine to family and friends. We were even approached by the schools to give copies of the magazine to teachers. They will be distributed at all the events we help plan and through our advertisers. We also welcome all of our advertisers to send the online version of the magazine to their email databases to support one another.
