This past Sunday afternoon at the Huntington Country Club, the Junior Welfare League of Huntington awarded two local citizens with scholarships at their annual Spring Luncheon and Boutique. Angela Hendrickson of Greenlawn was awarded the Healthcare Fund scholarship, while Alana Siev of Half Hollow Hills East High School was awarded the Youth in Philanthropy award for community service.

There was a packed house of 130 people at yesterday's JWL Luncheon and Boutique

Mrs. Henrikson, of Greenlawn, was on hand to receive the Healthcare Fund Scholarship, which was created to help those in financial need study nursing and its’ related professions.  When asked for comment, Mrs. Henrikson took the opportunity to thank the Junior Welfare League of Huntington for their generosity and support in helping her achieve her nursing education goal.

Ms. Siev, of Dix Hills, received the foundation’s youth in Philanthropy Award, established to recognize a local high school senior for her dedication to philanthropy and community service. Unfortunately, Ms. Siev could not be reached for comment as the awards ceremony conflicted with a philanthropic event at the high school.

It was a busy day at the Boutique rooms of the 2011 JWL Spring Luncheon

The luncheon also serves as one of the main fundraising functions of the year for the Junior Welfare League and also housed a small boutique which contained a number of products and services ranging from flowers to flip-flops.  The proceeds for the event would then be used entirely for their community services, such as their Lift Fund, which helps Huntington residents who need a financial “lift” to get back on their feet again.
