Atlantic Cape Receives $2,500 for Scholarships from Rio Auto Body

September 12, 2016

The Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation received a $2,500 donation from Lou Altobelli, owner of Rio Auto Body of Rio Grande, recently. This was the fourth installment of a $12,500 pledge to Create Opportunity—The Capital & Scholarship Campaign for Atlantic Cape.

The Rio Auto Body Scholarship is presented annually to a second-year Cape May County resident with a minimum GPA of 3.0 who is a full-time business major with financial need.

In past years, Altobelli and his company have supported the Atlantic Cape Foundation Golf Tournament and the Restaurant Gala. He serves as a trustee on the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation and served as co-chair of the college’s 2014 and 2015 Scramble “Fore” Scholarships Golf Tournament Committee.
