Latest Updates

The Fund once again handed out Bright Light Scholarships to college-bound students attending the Steppin' Out Dance Studio in Saco, ME. This is the dance school Elle attended for 3+ years and it is the fourth year of the scholarship program.

The recipients this year were:

  • Danica Lamontagne
  • Shania Evangelista
  • Tara Levy
  • Sabryna Deshaies
  • Kayla Tremblay
  • Lauren Whitney
  • Kelsey Gamage
Congratulations to all the recipients. We look forward to our fifth year in 2015!

On September 4, Jennifer Skinsacos held her fourth annual fundraiser for the Power of Elle at Ken's Place Seafood Restaurant in Scarborough. Jennifer takes all her tips from that evening along with any donations from patrons and generously gives that money to the Fund.

This year, thanks to Jen, the generosity of her customers and the great support she gets from the owner of Ken's place, she was able to raise over $1400 for the Fund. This helps to pay for Fund donations like the Bright Light scholarships and the annual donations to MCCP and the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital. We cannot thank Jen and Ken's Place enough for this very generous annual donation.

It is this kindness that always reminds us that Elle's spirit lives on and continues to make a difference in our community.

Also, please go read about the Hugs From Hayley Race for Maine Children's Cancer. This is an annual event in Saco that raises a lot of money for MCCP, where Elle received such excellent care. The Fund sponsors the kids 1K Fun Run, which they have named the Elle Dash. It's a worthy cause run by wonderful people, so please check it out and help make this year's race the best one yet.
