Thanks to friends and family of the late Amy Kline and the many local businesses who donated goods and services, the Second Annual Wine Night held at the Ritz Charles last month raised enough money to establish a second Amy Kline Memorial Scholarship through the Carmel Education Foundation.

The family also increased the scholarship amount from $1,000 to $2,500 each which is awarded to a Carmel High School senior that will attend Indiana University to study education, and is also active in both school and community activities.

“It won’t be perpetual but we thought it would be more meaningful to whoever gets it,” commented Spencer Kline.

According to Kline, not only did the event raise the $25,000 required to endow a second scholarship in his late wife Amy’s name who was a six-time PTO president and avid community volunteer, funds were also raised to allow for a donation to the chemo ward at St.Vincent hospital where Amy spent so much time as a patient.

Kline would like to thank everyone for their gracious donations and said “people really came through” to make the event a success including the Ritz Charles, Fusek’s True Value Hardware, Gigi’s Cupcakes, Faith’s Cake Ball Factory, Moyer Fine Jewelers and “10 Days Pending,” the local band comprised of Carmel High School faculty. Kline also added that his sister-in-law Melissa Saunders and her husband Scott did an incredible job planning the event.
