Spring Tea Hosted By Great Falls Friends And Neighbors

The Great Falls Friends and Neighbors Scholarship Fund held its Spring Tea 2021 fundraiser on Sunday, April 25. According to member Emma Reynolds, seventy-nine individuals attended the ticketed, hybrid event, some virtually and some in-person, under Covid-limited capacity at River Bend Golf and Country Club in Great Falls.

Holly Ann Kuga: A scholarship fund is organized in her name to support the education of deserving women students seeking upper-level degrees.

According to Great Falls Connection, “In conjunction with the 2021 Spring Tea, the Scholarship Fund is establishing a scholarship in memory of Holly Ann Kuga, a long-standing member of GFFN and a beloved friend and supporter of the Fund, according to a press release. The event included comments, a talk about tea and a tea tasting, and a raffle to benefit the Scholarship fund. The Fund’s directive is to award scholarships to deserving women over the age of 25 who are Northern Virginia residents. They must demonstrate a financial need and be in good academic standing.”

As per Great Falls Connection, “There was a tremendous amount of interest and support for the women students and then for Holly Ann Kuga, an active volunteer for the Scholarship Fund who passed away after a tragic car crash in December. “This outpouring of love for her from her friends here in Great Falls and in Great Falls Friends and Neighbors led to our decision to establish a scholarship in her name, spearheaded by Sally-Anne Andrew Pyne, who has been working with us behind the scenes for months,” said Lavin.”
