LIBERTY, NY (January 20, 2013) – From January 27 through February 3, the Liberty Diner will donate 10 percent of its dining proceeds to benefit the SUNY Sullivan Foundation.
The donation will raise funds for SUNY Sullivan’s “College in High School” scholarship program. The program has been facilitated by Liberty Diner’s Irene Tsicalos.
The diner is located at 30 Sullivan Avenue in Liberty.
Owners Nick & Helen Tsicalos, whose son George is a graduate of SUNY Sullivan’s Culinary Arts program, will present a check to SUNY Sullivan Foundation Chairperson Gary Schmidt in February, when a grand total will also be announced.
SUNY Sullivan will have a recruiting table set up inside the Liberty Diner during the fundraising period. The college invites all community members – whether they be prospective students, current or potential boosters, alumni, or simply interested neighbors – to stop by and learn more about the academic and social opportunities available at the college.
The Foundation’s mission is to work to secure private funds that supplement the college’s traditional revenue sources, providing for scholarship assistance, funding for equipment and enrichment programs, and enhancing and strengthening the college’s academic programs.
Through contributions like this one, scholarship assistance reaches deserving students from Sullivan County and beyond, helping them get educations that prepare them for life after formal education.
