Jordan and Ashley Siegel Scholarship Fund Event

The Jordan & Ashley Siegel Scholarship fund was founded in the summer of 2012 by Christie Siegel in association with the Royal Oak Youth Assistance Program. After Christie’s children were killed in a car accident, there was an outpouring of love & support from friends, family, and the community. Christie took that momentum & decided to give back to the community in which she & her children were so involved. Jordan and Ashley both attended Upton Elementary and Christie has done a great deal supporting our school with school supplies and providing buses for field trips. On Friday, September 23, from 6:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. the Jordan and Ashley Siegel Scholarship Fund is having an Autumn Harvest Fundraiser. Click on the link for more information.
