Project Most, a nonprofit after-school program for elementary students in East Hampton and Springs, has established a new scholarship committee that aims to “ ‘scale up’ the mission of Project Most so more and more kids can participate,” Lisa Rana, the president of the organization’s board, said in a release.
The committee is the brainchild of Kyle Lynch, an attorney with Bainton Lynch in East Hampton, who will serve as its chairman. Mr. Lynch approached the board after learning that the after-school program, which serves over 300 children at the John M. Marshall Elementary and Springs Schools, gives out more than $100,000 in scholarships each year. “Project Most cannot go away; it is vital to the future of East Hampton’s youth,” Mr. Lynch said in a release.
As its first project, the committee is planning a fund-raising dinner to be held on July 27 at the East Hampton studio of Roy Nicholson, an artist, with food prepared by Joe Realmuto, John Delucie, and Jim Botsacos. Details are still being finalized.
