Atlantic Cape Foundation Sponsored Sept. 21 Event For Atlantic County Contractors

September 28, 2010

The Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation sponsored a reception on Sept. 21 at the Mays Landing Golf and Country Club to provide local contractors, union representatives and elected officials an opportunity to learn about ongoing construction plans at the college and the mission of the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation. Nearly 50 guests attended the event.

Atlantic Cape administrators and Foundation members spoke about several key philanthropic opportunities and construction initiatives at the college.

Doug Fraser, owner of the Mays Landing Golf and Country Club, and Will Morey, president of Morey’s Piers in Wildwood, will co-chair a fundraising initiative with the Atlantic Cape Foundation to support the purchase of scientific lab equipment and furnishings for the new Science, Technology, Engineering and Math building to be built at the Mays Landing Campus.

Stephen Nehmad, Esq., secretary of the Foundation Board, explained how the Foundation and the college collaborate to provide student scholarships and support for programs and projects.

Dr. Peter Mora, president of Atlantic Cape, discussed the college’s master plan of development for new facilities and programs, and Dr. Richard Perniciaro, dean of facilities, planning and finance, presented construction project timelines and bid-ready building plans.

Atlantic Cape established the Foundation in 1978 to build a broad base of financial support for its programs and services. Foundation members are drawn from local industry and small businesses and represent a broad cross-section of active leaders in the community. The Foundation has raised more than $2 million for scholarships and to enhance academic programs and the campus environment.
