Fundraiser for the Alana Ferrante Memorial Scholarship Fund

 

Established in November of 2015 The Alana Ferrante Memorial Scholarship was created to honor the memory of Alana, a graduate of the Class of 2014 of South Windsor High School.  Alana's legacy travels many paths: those of the scholar, athlete, engaged member of the school community, and beloved family member and friend.  In all she did, Alana strove to be a team player believing inclusion of all made the unit strong.  Since June 2016, eleven recipients of The Alana Ferrante Memorial Scholarship were announced at the South Windsor High School Senior Awards Night events.  

 

To establish and enhance this wonderful scholarship fund, the friends and family of Alana established an annual volleyball tournament called "Alanapalooza."  The inaugural "Alanapalooza" was held on Father's Day [19 June 2016] and was a rousing success!  The second "Alanapalooza" was held at the sand volleyball courts at Revolutions at NOMADS located at 60 Bidwell Road off Route 5 in South Windsor, CT on Saturday, 17 June 2017.  It featured a volleyball tournament, live music, a raffle and food was available throughout the event.  Attendees claimed it was "perfect way to spend the day- sharing time with friends, volleyball, music and food!"
