We are almost half way to our goal!

Here is another great way you can support the Joana D. McKeoun Memorial Scholarship: A Pampered Chef Online Party! Here is how it works:

It's easy: Go to the link below, select "Shop Online" in the upper right hand corner, type "Scholarship Fundraiser" for the host and you are ready to shop to your heart's content. Joana's scholarship will receive 30% of all the sales! Tonya VanTol was kind enough to offer her entire commission for this sale - how incredibly awesome is that! Thank you!!!

This fundraiser will end on January 26, 2014, and your orders will be shipped directly to your house...anywhere in the U.S!

As always, please feel free to share this link.
Have fun shopping...and supporting this great cause! Joana's light will always shine!

Good evening!

This is our kick-off fundraiser for the Joana D. McKeoun Memorial Scholarship fund!

To get things started and be able to award a scholarship this spring, we would like to raise $1000. In order to continue the legacy of Joana's scholarship indefinitely, we are setting up an endowment fund with the Saginaw Community Foundation so that eventually it will support itself without any further fundraising. However, in order to achieve this goal, there will be quite a bit of fundraising going on during the first couple of years.


Education was extremely important to Joana, and I know she would love the idea of helping a high school student get one step closer to achieving his/her dream of going to college! Please help us reach our goal by donating - no amount is too small! :)


Thank you!

Joana has always been an inspiration to me. I hope this scholarship inspires others to live life to its fullest, and to chase their dreams - just like Joana did!
