Honor Volunteer Bev Sved at the Scarsdale Bowl Dinner on April 25

BOWL(This letter was sent to Scarsdale10583 by Terri Simon, Chair of the Scarsdale Bowl Committee)
I encourage Scarsdale residents to join me in attending the Scarsdale Bowl Dinner on Wednesday, April 25, at the Fountainhead in New Rochelle. The Bowl Dinner is one of the most inspiring events in town because it honors deserving individuals devoted to the extraordinary culture of public service that makes this community so special – and this year’s Bowl honoree, Beverley D. Sved, has tirelessly served our community for almost 30 years.


If you don’t already know Bev, an engineer and Chartered Financial Analyst by training, she had a long and successful career at IBM in the areas of Corporate Strategy, Business Forecasting and Industry Analysis. At the same time, soon after she and her husband Paul moved to Scarsdale in 1988, she began taking on volunteer responsibilities large and small in Scarsdale, including serving as a Village Trustee from 1998-2002 and as Mayor from 2003-2005. In addition, she was a director on the boards of the League of Women Voters of Westchester and the Scarsdale Forum (both organizations in which she remains active), a Trustee and then Vice President of the Scarsdale Foundation, a member of the Village Board Finance Committee and the Planning Board, President of the Westchester County Historical Society, a director on the boards of the United Way and Scarsdale & Edgemont Family Counseling, President of the Overhill Neighborhood Association and Chair of Scarsdale Neighborhood Association Presidents. She has been an exemplary volunteer whom we are proud to honor.

The Bowl Dinner is also a wonderful opportunity to catch up with friends and neighbors. Whether you are a veteran volunteer or someone who has yet to explore the many public service opportunities the Village provides, all of us can appreciate the spirit of service celebrated by the Scarsdale Bowl. Resident volunteers head Village government, serve on Village Boards and Councils, comprise the Board of Education, and serve on Parent Teacher Associations and neighborhood associations. In addition, many community members work with the Scarsdale Forum, League of Women Voters of Scarsdale or religious organizations, or serve as volunteer firefighters, athletic coaches, scout leaders or with other local service organizations. These efforts give residents a real voice in how Scarsdale operates – and it is truly inspiring to see so many longtime residents gather to honor an exemplary volunteer from among their ranks.

The 76-year tradition of the Scarsdale Bowl is sustained by the Scarsdale Foundation. The Scarsdale Foundation funds need-based scholarships to deserving Scarsdale High School graduates and Scarsdale residents in their sophomore through senior years of college, funding over $120,000 in scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year. In addition, the Foundation funds specific grants for civic purposes to strengthen local non-profit organizations. The Bowl dinner is not itself a fund raising event so when you RSVP to the Bowl, please also make a donation to the Scarsdale Foundation.

Tickets are available at www.scarsdalefoundation.org, by April 9. If you did not receive a paper invitation, or want another copy, please contact Robert Jeremiah, Secretary to the Scarsdale Bowl Committee, at scarbowl@gmail.com. Join us April 25th at the Fountainhead in New Rochelle, in celebrating Bev Sved and the value of volunteering to our community.

Terri Simon, Chair, 2018 Scarsdale Bowl Committee
