Fundraiser re­flects self­less spirit of 9/11 vic­tim

The Morning Call - - TOWN SQUARE -

The 18th an­nual Bill Su­gra Memorial Out­ing was held Aug. 23 at Green Pond Coun­try Club, Beth­le­hem Town­ship, and our fam­ily would like to thank all of the many gen­er­ous spon­sors, vol­un­teers and golfers.

Bill, our dear son, who is smil­ing down on us, gives us strength to go on. Sept. 11 was such a sense­less and dev­as­tat­ing tragedy. Al­though dif­fi­cult, it is im­por­tant to fo­cus our en­ergy from our sor­row and help­less­ness on the fu­ture. Our fam­ily chose to give Sept. 11 mean­ing by do­ing some­thing good for oth­ers.

Be­cause of the gen­eros­ity of so many peo­ple in this com­mu­nity, the Bill Su­gra Memorial Fund will dis­trib­ute $71,800 in Bill’s mem­ory by do­nat­ing to more than three dozen com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions. In 18 years, we have been able to grant a to­tal of $813,602 to many worth­while or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als in need.

We also con­tinue a match­ing schol­ar­ship with In­di­ana Univer­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia, where Bill went to col­lege. There is a memorial to three stu­dents who grad­u­ated from IUP who were trag­i­cally killed at the World Trade Cen­ter.

Thank you for help­ing to con­tinue Bill’s self­less spirit and mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in some­one else’s life. Please visit our web­site (bill­sug­ramemo­ri­al­fund.org) to find out more. Bill and El Su­gra Salisbury Town­ship Steven and Tracy Sell Weisen­berg Town­ship
