Dear Friends:

   The mission of the Sharkey Laureno Scholarship Fund, Inc. is to enhance the lives of Stamford's young people through sports and education. Since our beginning in 1987, we have provided in excess of $361,000 in financial aid to 150 different college students in their sophomore through senior school years. Last year we were able to award $26,900 among 13 students. Our continuing goal is to help more students with larger scholarships. Students beginning their second year of college who've played in Stamford's Junior Babe Ruth Baseball league are eligible.

   Our annual baseball tournament, which has been in existence since 1987, will be played at Stamford's Cubeta Stadium. The tournament dates are posted at the top of our website. Sixteen teams and 200 players from Connecticut and New York will be participating.

   The costs of a college education grow faster than inflation. This year, the president of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system is recommending tuition hikes of 4 percent each of the next two years at state universities and 2.5 percent at community colleges. Add in all the other incidental costs, only the very wealthy can afford to pay for college education without some financial help.

   The Sharkey Laureno Scholarship Fund derives all its income from contributions from our sponsors and money raised at our annual baseball tournament. All proceeds go directly to our scholarships. We are a 100% volunteer organization. All donations are tax deductible. Sharkey Laureno Scholarship Fund, Inc. is a Connecticut non-profit IRS 501(c)(3) charity.

Your generosity will be acknowledged in our tournament program booklet and on our website together with a link to your own website.

If you have any questions, please call Lou at (203) 358-9273.

We are in dire need of commercial-grade kitchen equipment and cabinets. Any help you can give us would be most appreciative.
