v6

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA – PR Solutions will host its second Charity Supper Club (CSC) event on July 19th at Walnut Grill Restaurant in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania. The dinner will benefit college-bound high school graduates from Pittsburgh’s low-income communities. Scholarships will be awarded to up to three 2015 or 2016 freshmen. To apply, students can complete an application at: Charity Supper Club Scholarship Application.

“We want to give kids a jumpstart in life,” said PR Solutions’ co-founder and Chief Financial Officer, Scottie Jackson. “College is an exciting time but if students and parents are struggling financially it can be a very stressful time as well. Our goal is to provide scholarships to help cover the cost of books or other fees for entering freshmen. We encourage everyone to join us at the next event and to give. An investment in our kids is the most important investment we can make.”

Scholarship amounts will be determined by how much is raised during the event. CSC attendees raised $1,200 in April to support Pittsburgh-area nonprofit, Entrepreneuring Youth.

To qualify, students must meet the following requirements:

  • Graduate from a Pittsburgh-area high school in 2015
  • Be accepted to an accredited 2 or 4-year college or university
  • Submit a 250 – 500 word paper on, Why a good education is the key to making my dreams come true?
  • Express financial need for books, year-one tuition and/or other essential items or reside in an economically challenged area.

The deadline for applications is July 1st.
