STORR TRACTOR GIFT TO RVCC BENEFITS ATHLETES, THEATRE
A generous $5,000 donation by longtime Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) Foundation supporter Storr Tractor will benefit the Theatre at RVCC and the College?s Women?s Softball Team.
Mary Lou Des Champs, president and CEO of the Branchburg-based company, joined other major Foundation donors on December 8 at a pre-theatre reception at the College. At the event, Des Champs received a personal thank you for the gift to the softball team. Team member Christine Doremus presented Des Champs with a signed softball as a token of their appreciation for the gift that supports the team?s annual trip to South Carolina for spring training. Doremus, who is also a member of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, said that being part of the team had enriched her life and enhanced her experience at RVCC. ?You have no idea what a difference your gift has made for me and my teammates,? she told Des Champs.
The Storr Tractor gift also helps the Theatre at RVCC by underwriting costs associated with its schedule of performances. The Theatre offers a variety of performances for audiences of all ages, providing the community with cultural experiences at affordable prices.
