The Geddy Lee Scholarship At Niagara College
On Friday, November 25th, Niagara College held a press conference to witness Grapes for Humanity Canada’s donation of $26,500 to create a scholarship in perpetuity in the name of Geddy Lee. GFH’s directors wished to honour Geddy Lee for his on-going contributions to the foundation and its projects. Geddy could not be there for the presentation; but Tony Aspler read the following message from him.
“I’d like to thank my fellow directors of Grapes for Humanity Canada for this generous gesture in creating and supporting this valuable scholarship program for the students of Niagara College. I feel deeply honoured and I am extremely proud to be associated with such good and generous people. GFH Canada is a unique organization of wine lovers such as myself, who have found a way to help people around the globe through their passion, and as such it seems appropriate that we now help to provide some support for our own blossoming wine industry here at home.’
Grapes For Humanity was founded in 2003 by Arlene Willis and Tony Aspler. The group, made up of wine lovers around the world, focusses on raising “funds to benefit humanitarian causes around the world.”
