Big Name Sponsors Help Local Non-Profit Raise Money for New, Youth Scholarship Fund
Plano, TX, October 14, 2015 --( The Jim Utley Foundation, a Texas-based 501(c)3 non-profit, is hosting a Masquerade party on Friday, October 23rd, the first day of National Red Ribbon Week – Drug Awareness - in historic downtown Plano at 34Events, a new venue, to raise money for a new scholarship program to debut in 2016.

Rebecca Baker, Founder and President of The Jim Utley Foundation lost her brother, Jim Utley of Plano, in 2006, because of Methamphetamine. “Our goal is always to help youth discover how to lead a full and rewarding life without the use of drugs. My younger brother struggled with addiction and balance his whole life,” said Baker. “The JUF Scholarship Fund will not be traditional in that it will offer help paying for sports and other extracurricular activities as well as academics.”

"The Jim Utley Foundation will be partnering with Plano Sports Authority (PSA) to provide families who qualify with youth summer sports camps. “We are looking to partner with other organizations as well," said Baker. “Our plan is that the scholarship fund will also help those youth in-need of rehab and/or drug and alcohol counseling and possibly support youth who successfully completed that type of treatment and want to go to college but can’t afford it fully.”

Masquerade will be held at 1017 E. 15th Street in Plano from 8 p.m. – midnight. Tickets are $125 each and include food by Ruth’s Chris Steak House and Eatzi’s (Plano) as well as cocktails by Deep Eddy Vodka, Silver Star Whiskey and Ben E. Keith. Tickets also include live entertainment by In10City, valet parking and a silent auction. Other sponsors include Mercedes Benz of Plano, The Utley Family, Plano Profile, Good Life Family Magazine, Starpower and Neiman Marcus Willow Bend.
