The goal of the Project is to have 100 women from the business and professional communities in Sussex County, NJ contribute $100 each year for five years to endow scholarships for women attending Sussex County Community College. Ten thousand dollars will endow a scholarship at the college and, over five years, will fund five separate scholarships. A steering committee has been formed to set guidelines for awarding the scholarships and there is hope that the project will grow and continue endowing scholarships for women well beyond five years.

In other news, Lorraine recently had her sculpture selected for the New Jersey State Bar Foundation Art Show at the Law Center in New Brunswick, NJ. The sculpture, entitled "Half the Sky," was inspired by a PBS documentary depicting the horrendous abuse of third world women.
