Lyndell’s Bakery is extremely proud to announce that thanks to the generosity of it’s customers, the $100,000 goal of the Sean Collier Memorial Scholarship Fund was met after this past Marathon weekend in April.
Once again, The bakery contributed $1 for every half moon sold during the 3 day weekend and this year’s total pushed the grand total to over $108,000. “We’re ecstatic,”remarked Bill Galatis, owner of Lyndell’s. “We achieved our goal because customers still care about the ultimate sacrifice Sean Collier made when he was gunned down in 2013. His memory will live on through this permanent endowment at Somerville High School.” Although the goal was met, Lyndell’s has decided to sponsor one last fundraiser next year during Marathon weekend 2024. Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of the fundraising activities and give the fund a chance to grow to $125,000.
The Sean Collier Memorial Scholarship Fund is a separate permanent endowment fund under the auspices of the Somerville High School Scholarship Foundation. Each year recipients of this fund are awarded $1,000 scholarships.
