The May Court Club of Oakville will help students achieve their dreams of a post secondary education with the money raised from the Annual Cap and Gown Fundraiser Dinner held at the Oakville Conference Centre. The May Court Club of Oakville has awarded in excess of half a million dollars in scholarships to over 360 deserving post secondary students from nine Oakville high schools since the scholarship program began in 1959. As a result of the 2013 fundraising efforts, $57,000 was awarded to 54 Oakville students in aid of their post secondary education .
Not only do these students require financial aid, they are also community volunteers who all have a very strong commitment to his or her community and are dedicated to “giving back”. This is the strength of May Court Club of Oakville and every dollar raised at the Annual Cap and Gown Fundraiser Dinner went directly to the scholarship fund. The May Court Club of Oakville is a completely volunteer run organization with no administrative costs. A 2013 recipient, Ember says,” Your kindness inspires me to continue my volunteer work with my community and to pursue other volunteer opportunities in the future. I hope one day I can help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.”
