– Tickets to a Camden Riversharks game

– A coffee gift basket from Wawa

– Tickets to the Garden State Discovery Museum

– A custom necklace from Simple Pleasures Jewelry

Two Months Out!

Well we have reached the two month mark in our countdown to the Tin Man 5k. The Foundation is very excited about the community involvment to date; we have received a number of in-kind donations for race day which will make the Tin Man 5k that much more fun for the participants. Most recently, we received tickets from Adventure Aquarium and a gift card from Don Pablo’s. We thank them for their generosity.

In addition, we received another race sponsor; the Foundation would like to thank Zallie’s ShopRite for the committment to sponsor the Tin Man 5k.

If anyone knows of any other local businesses who would be interested in a great advertising opportunity, point them here. We would love to see more companies include the Foundation in their community outreach efforts.

Any company that agrees to sponsor the Tin Man 5k will receive advertisting on our race shirt and promotional material – along with mentions on this site and on our Facebook Fan Page.

However – the reason for this post is that we got our first two sponsors!

Hello world!

Hi and welcome to the William T. Nace Scholarship Foundation!

We are a New Jersey Non-Profit Corporation that was formed to provide scholarship opportunities to South Jersey high school seniors who want to go to college. While the Nace family isn’t new at providing scholarships, this is our first year as an official non-profit corporation. Go big or go home, right?

It is our goal to provide scholarships to students all over South Jersey and with board members from Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties, you can be sure that we are looking to expand all throughout the lower half of our fine state.

 We are having a race as our first official fundraiser and are looking for runners and walkers to come out and join us in this inaugural effort.

If you have a business and want to sponsor us, click here – we’d love to have you on board! Stick with us as we count down to the big day – you can follow us here and in the near future, on Twitter and Facebook.

Start training for the big day!


AllynMarie Smedley, President

William T. Nace Scholarship Foundation
