The Board of Directors of Project MOST has announced the formation of a new Scholarship and Leadership Committee.

Project MOST is a nonprofit organization that provides students with academic support, enrichment activities, and a positive social environment every day after school. The organization has extended the learning day from 3 to 6 p.m. for hundreds of kids in East Hampton, and also gives more than $100,000 worth of scholarships every year.

Now, thanks to the idea of Kyle Lynch, Project MOST is forming a Scholarship and Leadership Committee. Lynch, who will serve as the committee’s chairman, said, “Project MOST is a critical resource in the East Hampton community helping all kids who want to participate, access and afford after school learning resources. Working parents know their children have a safe place to be after school. It is vital to the future of East Hampton’s you that Project MOST must not go away.”

The committee’s mission is to raise the funds necessary to ensure that all of the children in the East Hampton community who want to attend Project MOST will have the opportunity to do so. Project MOST hopes that no child will be home alone after school.

The committee’s first project is an exclusive dinner by Nick & Toni’s to be held at the studio of renowned East End painter, Roy Nicholson. Joe Realmuto, chef of Nick & Toni’s, will co-host the dinner with Lynch. The dinner will be prepared with only local, organic ingredients.

This exclusive dinner will be held on Sunday, July 27, beginning at 6:30 p.m.  For further details or to attend, contact Project MOST’s director of development, Susan Gentile Hackett, at 631-604-2777.
