Birthday and UMF Celebration

On March 28, 2015 UMF co-Founder Ernie Urquhart celebrated his milestone birthday with wife Michelle and over 100 friends and family from across the country at a gala benefit for the Urquhart Memorial Foundation, held in Scottsdale AZ.

Celebrating the blessings of 65 years of life and 10 years cancer-free Ernie used the celebration opportunity to also celebrate the benefactors and beneficiaries of the UMF. Donations to the Foundation totaled nearly $12,000 as guests showed their love for Ernie and support for the Urquhart Memorial Foundation with their presence and giving.

Three days after the big event the UMF scholarship application submission process ended. Over fifty applications were received and are being processed for decisions to be communicated to applicants no later than May 15, 2015.

The 12th Annual Urquhart Memorial Foundation Scholarship Awards Ceremony will be held on Sunday August 2, 2015 at the Philadelphia Airport Marriott Grand Ballroom at 4:00 pm.

The donation gifts received in honor of Ernie, and all other donations, to the UMF will go along way toward making it possible to award many UMF scholarship awards in August to deserving students.

Thank You!
