Despite the pandemic, The Scarsdale Foundation and Scarsdale Bowl Committee have been active during the past year, and the community has been extremely supportive and generous.
The 2021 Scarsdale Bowl Committee will begin working to select the 2022 recipient of the Scarsdale Bowl award at its initial meeting on December 12th and is seeking recommendations from the community for next year’s honoree by November 25 but nominations will be accepted up until December 12. Nominees must be Scarsdale residents who do not currently hold an elective office. Click here to access the nominee recommendation form.
Any member of the Bowl Committee will gladly answer questions. Contact Chair Nancy Michaels at 914-725-8310 or at NancyMichaels311@gmail.com.
Guidelines for Nominations
The Scarsdale Bowl, under the sponsorship of the Scarsdale Foundation, has been awarded annually since 1943 to an individual (or in exceptional cases, to a married couple) who has given “unselfishly of their 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.”
Annual Bowl Dinner – SAVE THE DATE!
The community celebration dinner is currently scheduled to be held in-person on Thursday, April 28, 2022 at Brae Burn Country Club in Purchase.
The Scarsdale Bowl Dinner 2022, themed “Shine on Scarsdale,” will pay tribute to the newest Bowl honoree, as well as recognize 2020 winners BK Munguia and Jonathan Mark, and 2021 recipient Michelle Lichtenberg since we were unable to gather in person during Covid. The Committee is grateful that despite the dinner’s cancellation, the Scarsdale community has been generous, making donations toward the Foundation’s college scholarships, which are more crucial than ever. The hope is that next year the community will be able to properly celebrate the spirit of volunteerism, central to the civic life of Scarsdale, and that another group of deserving students will benefit from the evening’s proceeds. In addition, the Honor Roll will again allow everyone to recognize the day-to-day volunteerism of friends and neighbors while generating more support for the Foundation’s projects.
2022 Bowl Committee
Michelle Lichtenberg, President of the Scarsdale Foundation, announced that Nancy Michaels will once again serve as chair of this year’s Scarsdale Bowl Committee, and Abby Sroka will continue as the Secretary/Treasurer. Members of the Bowl Committee serve a staggered two-year term. The members of the newly-appointed class of 2023 are Becky Bach, Sara Farnsworth, Adam Hellegers, Eric Lichtenstein, Margot Milberg, Erika Rublin, and Beverly Thornhill. The continuing class of 2022 is comprised of Sergi Flaster, Michael Rosen, Svati Shashank, Scott Silberfein, Loretta Vickers, and Han Zou. Jennifer Love, a Scarsdale Foundation trustee, will serve on the Committee as the liaison for the second year.
The Scarsdale Foundation Honor Roll Update
In 2021, nearly a thousand individuals were named to The Scarsdale Foundation Honor Roll by their friends, neighbors, and family for volunteerism, raising close to $30,000. The Honor Roll was a wonderful way to celebrate all the volunteers in our village who make a difference. Thanks to the Scarsdale community’s generosity and partnership, these funds can now be distributed as college scholarships for deserving Scarsdale students in need.
