Rooftop Reds is proud to announce its partnership with The State University of New York in establishing the first of its kind endowment scholarship. The intention of this scholarship will be to provide some financial support to Brooklyn students attending any of SUNY’s Upstate New York Colleges.
Devin Shomaker, managing partner of Rooftop Reds, is an alumnus of Finger Lakes Community College, and has built his company with the education, tools and personal connections he got from his years there. Now as a local business owner in Brooklyn Devin is looking to give back to the community, and provide students with the same opportunities that he himself is benefitting from.
Rooftop Reds has set a goal of raising $25,000 for this scholarship. Efforts began during the Drink Local week, Oct. 21-26 2016, with a five-dollar donation of every bottle sold. SUNY and Rooftop Reds hope to award their first scholarship by the start of the fall 2017 semester.
Future fund raising plans are in the works presently, but you don’t have to wait! If you’re interested in donating directly or getting involved you can reach out via firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you!
