WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- Jamil Faridy of Levittown, a long-time member of Mercer County Community College's Foundation Board, kicked off the 2007 Scholarship Gala fundraising campaign with a $5,000 donation.

Mr. Faridy is chairman of the Boheme Opera of NJ, and is retired from the architectural firm Faridy Veisz Fraytak of Ewing. Over the past 17 years Mr. Faridy has volunteered to personally raise more than $500,000 for student scholarships. In addition to his generous personal contributions, he annually solicits area corporations for sponsorships, ads and auction donations. An artist and musician, Mr. Faridy annually donates his paintings to MCCC's silent auction. From 1962 to 1967 he was an adjunct professor of architecture at Mercer. Since then he has been a volunteer member of the college's Architectural Advisory Commission.

Set for March 10 at the Hyatt Regency, this year's event "On Broadway" will again raise scholarship funds for deserving students who need financial assistance. The evening features an elegant dinner, dancing, and silent auction. Click here for more information, or call Elaine Stout at 609-586-4800 ext. 3607.
