Tina Mazaheri, President, Bucks County Bar Foundation

THE BUCKS COUNTY BAR FOUNDATION HELD ITS
3RD ANNUAL ST. PATRICK'S DAY FUNDRAISING
EVENT THIS PAST MARCH AT HOPS/SCOTCH IN
DOYLESTOWN TO RAISE MONEY FOR OUR TWO
SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS, THE WILLIAM PENN AND
THOMAS E. MELLON, JR. SCHOLARSHIPS. SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AWARDED TO AREA HIGH SCHOOL
SENIORS WHO ARE PLANNING TO PURSUE AN
EDUCATION IN EITHER THE LEGAL PROFESSION,
PUBLIC SERVICE AND/OR COMMUNITY SERVICE.
This year's event proved to be a huge success with the
highest attendance ever! Eighty attendees enjoyed
delicious finger foods, cocktails and traditional Irish ballads
performed by the musical duo Scanlin & O'Leary. Through
the generosity of sponsors, we raised over $16,000 for the
following scholarship funds:

This Scholarship, given annually, provides financial
assistance for post-high school education of students
interested in pursuing a career in law or a law-related
field. Applicants must demonstrate academic excellence,
wide ranging extracurricular activities and leadership.

The Thomas E. Mellon, Jr. Scholarship

The William Penn Scholarship

The Thomas E. Mellon, Jr. Scholarship, established by
the Bucks County Bar Foundation, is intended to honor
one of the Bucks County Bar Association's most ardent
supporters - Thomas E. Mellon, Jr.

The Bucks County Bar Foundation recognizes that the
members of the Bucks County Bar Association give
tirelessly of themselves in their chosen profession as well
as to their communities. The BCBF has established the
William Penn Scholarship to honor and further the defining
characteristics of the members of the Bucks County Bar
Association, which are:

To honor the commitment and dedication of Thomas E.
Mellon, Jr., to the practice of law, to the ideals of public
service and commitment to community service, the
Foundation created the Thomas E. Mellon, Jr. Scholarship
Fund. Supported by individual contributions, the Thomas
E. Mellon, Jr. Scholarship provides scholarships to
candidates attending a four-year liberal arts education
program who have shown extraordinary commitment to
public service and/or community service.

* Dedication and commitment to the legal profession;
* Wholehearted commitment to public service and
community service.

Last year, BCBF awarded ten scholarships totaling
$18,000 as follows:
WILLIAM PENN: five scholarships of $1,500 each; and
THOMAS E. MELLON, JR.: two scholarships of $3,000
each and three scholarships of $1,500 each.
Thank you for making this year's event the best ever! Join
us for our Spring Golf Outing on Monday, June 24th at
