Dear editor,

“Our mission is to keep alive the memory of Jamie Ann through community service and scholarships.”

On Saturday, Sept. 26 we held our Third Annual Jamie Baker Memorial Fundraiser. This fundraiser was established to honor and remember our daughter Jamie who would have been part of the PA Class of 2015. The scholarship is awarded to a qualifying senior of Pittston Area. Due to the success of oursecond annual fundraiser, the family was able to give out four scholarships and three honorable mentions to Jamie’s Class of 2015.

Our family would like to send a special thank you to the Dupont VFW and their staff for taking care of so many details and being so helpful along with Sound Design Entertainment for providing great music and lights.

We would also like to send out a big thank you to the local businesses, merchants, family and friends who contributed by donating food, door prizes, baskets for the raffle, and monetary donations. Thank you, all who attended, danced and shared a great time with old and new friends. The evening was a wonderful success.

Our committee consists of several relatives and friends who spent countless hours helping to prepare for this night. In addition, this year we have partnered with The Luzerne Foundation, who acts as our fiscal sponsor and we are pleased to welcome them. Jamie would have been so touched to see the love and support everyone offered.

We would love to see everyone next year at the fourth annual fundraiser slated for Sept. 24, 2016.

Stay tuned by joining our Facebook page “Jamie Baker Memorial Scholarship” for what’s happening. And remember to #RememberJamie!

Much love, Jennifer, Fred and Jessica Baker as well as our awesome committee!

Thank you,
