PHILADELPHIA -- The Keystone Coffee Association has awarded three Irv Greif memorial scholarships. The coffee service association, which represents operators in the greater Philadelphia market, has also announced plans for its annual Phillies baseball outing.
This year's scholarship winners are Anayis Melikian, daughter of Robert and Susan Melikian of ABCD Coffee (Conshohocken, PA); Maura Uffelman, whose mother, Donna, is employed by Info Coffee Service (Philadelphia); and Kyle Ruffing, whose father, William, works for Quality Express Coffee (Tullytown, PA).
The scholarship fund was established 11 years ago to honor the late Irv Greif, founder of Take Ten Coffee Service in Philadelphia. The OCS pioneer established KCA in 1983 to foster camaraderie and the free exchange of knowledge among area operators.
KCA is organizing a group outing to a Major League baseball game at Citizens Bank Park on Monday, Aug. 23, to benefit the Greif scholarship fund and the Cathy Miller Cancer Fund. The Philadelphia Phillies will play the Houston Astros. Tickets cost $30 and can be purchased by calling Jim Walls at (215) 698-8577 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
