Allyson McMahon, co-owner of Three Rivers Air & Heat, is passionate about education: “I feel like education is a good solid foundation to start anything in life on the right foot. If people are educated, they are more able to give back. I believe that education helps not only the women who get the scholarships, but the community as a whole.”

To demonstrate her passion, Allyson has been an active member of Professional Women of St. Tammany since 2009. Allyson says, “Professional Women of St. Tammany helps me to leverage my giving to provide scholarships to 15 women; I have considered starting my own scholarship program, but my impact would be much more limited.”

This year, Three Rivers Air & Heat is taking their commitment a step further by donating $5 to the scholarship fund for every ticket sold to the Professional Women of St. Tammany’s “Reading, Writing, and Rhythm Rendezvous.” The event is on July 11, 2014, and tickets may be purchased online at: http://www.pw-st.org/ .

“We [Professional Women of St. Tammany] wanted to do something different; something fun,” McMahon says. “The Reading, Writing, and Rhythm Rendezvous fundraising event is designed to be a fun night out that even a spouse will enjoy,” she laughs.

The event will be held at the Lakehouse in Mandeville, and features entertainment by the Twilight Band, a fun photo booth by Anytime Booths, an open bar, raffle, and more! All proceeds from the event benefit the scholarship program.

Professional Women of St. Tammany is a nonprofit organization that strives to educate, promote and support all women in our community through networking, information, scholarships and workshops.

17 St. Tammany area women received $23,000 in scholarships in 2014. The goal for this year’s scholarship fund is $25,000.

All tickets purchased will automatically generate an additional $5 donation from Three Rivers Air & Heat toward the Professional Women of St. Tammany scholarship fund. Click here to purchase your ticket today.

Nonprofit Funding Available – Greater New Orleans area

HUGE opportunity for NOLA area nonprofits!

Imagine unrestricted funding (better than a grant!) in exchange for the sweat equity of volunteers…

In the past year I’ve had the opportunity to participate in two similar opportunities as a Rotarian– selling beer at the City of Covington’s Rockin’ On the Rails & at Jazzfest. Not only did we earn a nice sum of funding to support Rotary’s local and international human service initiatives, we had FUN!

Tanja Rogers, the Non Profit Recruiter & Trainer for Centerplate at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and New Orleans Arena, asked me to share this information with nonproifits in the Greater New Orleans area. They are looking for area nonprofits to participate in their generous funding opportunity described below:

“Fundraising Made Easy with Centerplate at Mercedes-Benz Superdome and New Orleans Arena

Say goodbye to car washes, candy sales, and magazine sales.  Centerplate at Mercedes-Benz Superdome gives back to the local community by offering non-profit organizations the opportunity to volunteer at concession stands during events to raise money.  We use non-profit groups to staff 95% of our stands.  Last year, Centerplate gave back more than $1.3 million to the local community.

Centerplate is now looking for 501 (c)(3), non-profit organizations for the upcoming 2012-2013 event season at the city’s premier event venues. If you are interested, please contact Tanja Rogers at (504) 264-4848 or via email at tanja.rogers@centerplate.com.”
