SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- The 2015 Scarsdale Bowl Committee will begin its work in early December to select the 2015 recipient of the Scarsdale Bowl and is seeking recommendations from the community for a possible honoree.
The Scarsdale Bowl, under the sponsorship of the Scarsdale Foundation, has been awarded annually since 1943 to an individual, or in rare instances, to a husband and wife, who has given “unselfishly of his/her time, energy and effort to the civic welfare of the community.” The founding donors of the bowl believed that “many who serve generously and voluntarily, without office, honor or publicity, are those deserving of having their names permanently inscribed on the Scarsdale Bowl.
Jon Mark is serving as chair of this year’s Scarsdale Bowl Committee. The members of the committee serve staggered two-year terms. The newly appointed Class of 2016 includes Felicia Block, Kay Eisenman, Susan Hochvert, Anne Lyons, Michael Pollack and Jay Musoff. The continuing Class of 2014 includes Nan Berke, Marc Greenwald, Michelle Lichtenberg, Lisa Messinger, Tom Souther, Geetha Subbakrishna and Richard Wingate. Jane Veron, Scarsdale Foundation trustee, will serve on the committee as the liaison, and Robert Jeremiah is serving as secretary/treasurer. Evelyn Stock, president of the Scarsdale Foundation, is an ex-officio, nonvoting member.
The Scarsdale Bowl will be awarded at a dinner on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at The Fountainhead in New Rochelle. The ceremony will pay tribute to the 2015 honoree and to the spirit of volunteerism, central to the civic life of the Scarsdale community.
The Bowl Committee welcomes community input. It will hold its first meeting Dec. 7 and requests that residents contact any member of the committee with suggestions for potential recipients. Suggestions should be emailed by Monday, Nov. 10, to the committee at: email@example.com.
