The 2013 Women of Tri-County Luncheon

Tri-County Scholarship Fund will be hosting its 1st Women of Tri-County Luncheon on Friday, November 8, 2013 at 11:00AM at the Morris County Golf Club in Morristown.  On this festive occasion we will recognize five outstanding women who have been role models for the youth of our area through their vocations and service to others.   In our inaugural year we will honor:

Barbara E. Kauffman Executive Vice President Newark Regional Business Partnership

Katherine Nukk-Freeman Founding and Managing Partner Nukk-Freeman & Cerra, P.C.

Lelia Pappas Principal Blessed Sacrament School

Meg Paradise Talent Management & Leadership Executive

Heather G. Suarez, Esq. Walder, Hayden & Brogan, P.A.

Through this event, funds are raised to support the Freedom Scholars program which is offered to students throughout Northern and Central New Jersey.  The Freedom Scholars program is geared to high school students of financial need as well as high academic achievement and potential.  It is a four-way partnership between Tri-County, participating high schools, students and their parents or guardians.  It enables these students to choose values-centered, high performing private schools.  Tri-County awards scholarship slightly less than half the tuition cost and the participating school matches it dollar for dollar, thus leaving the family a minimal balance to pay towards the tuition cost.  This is a commitment for the 4 year tenure in high school.

Please come and join us.  For more information please call 973-984-9600 or e-mail Minnie Simon at
