Plesser’s Appliance Scholarship In Memory of Diane Froehlich
Throughout its history, Plesser’s has remained family owned and has embodied the tenets of small business entrepreneurship. In an age of huge, multi-billion dollar chain stores, Plesser’s has used this spirit to navigate the retail appliance and electronics industry and remain viable and profitable.
Always looking to give back to the community that has supported us and served us well over the years, we have decided to create an annual scholarship, which will hopefully propel future generations of entrepreneurs toward a similar path, keeping small business relevant.
In 2016 we lost a devoted employee of almost 20 years and lifelong Babylon resident, Diane Froehlich. Diane was well known and loved in the community and was the embodiment of its spirit. Diane was also a graduate of Babylon High School. Accordingly, we are honored to create this scholarship in her name.
We awarded the Plesser’s Appliance scholarship to a Babylon High School Student looking to pursue a future in business. In addition, this student has a strong sense of community demonstrated in part by their participation in volunteer/philanthropic endeavors. On Tuesday, June 6th, 2017 we announced our first annual scholarship recipient, Celina Saffioti. Thank you to all of our applicants.
Plesser’s 1st Annual Charity Golf Outing
On Monday, July 17th, 2017 we had our first annual charity golf outing to benefit Long Island Home Builders Care Inc. LIHBC is a 501 C-3 organization that focuses on giving back to the community by donating their time and expertise in the field of construction and housing.
The outing took place at Colonial Springs in Farmingdale, New York. Registration began at 9:00 am with a shotgun start at 11:00 am. Following a fun day of golf, everyone enjoyed dinner, prizes and raffles. We had numerous sponsors and volunteers that helped make our day a successful, memorable one. We cannot thank everyone enough for all the support and generosity.
We’re looking forward to our next charity golf outing in 2018. Stay tuned for more details! It is sure to be another fantastic day.
