On Thursday, June 9, 2016, The Main Line Chamber Foundation hosted its 7th annual “A Celebration of Hometown Heroes” and presented over $40,000 in scholarships to Main Line volunteer Firefighters and EMTs. The Wayne Hotel was a proud sponsor of the ceremony saluting and recognizing the 2016 scholarship recipients, pictured below.
Established in 2001 as a charitable non-profit organization, The Main Line Chamber Foundation is dedicated to their mission of awarding scholarships to local volunteer firefighters and EMTs, supporting area high school juniors attending PA Free Enterprise Week summer camp, and assisting members’ employees participating in the Chamber’s Leadership Main Line program. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships to deserving Main Line recipients. The Foundation’s funding has come primarily from The Main Line Run event held each year in September.
