Sarah Lufkin Memorial Scholarship Benefit set for Thursday


The annual Sarah Lufkin Memorial Scholarship Benefit is scheduled for Thursday at Periwinkles Restaurant in Essex from 6 to 10 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres, live music, a cash bar, and a silent raffle/auction will highlight the evening, with funds raised going to support the scholarship fund started in 1999 in memory of Lufkin, a Salem State College early childhood education student who died of leukemia in 1997. The scholarship goes to students who graduated from an elementary school from the Manchester Essex Regional School District and who will be studying in a field that has a direct effect on children. Tickets are $25 per person and are available at the door the night of the event. Those wishing to make a donation to the auction or raffle are asked to contact Sue Lufkin at 978-768-7122, Laurie Lufkin at 978-985-6532, Kate Lufkin at 973-223-1069, or Kim Lufkin Williams at 978-853-0845.
