                          RE: 501 (c) (3) Charitable Contribution
                          From: June, 1957 Class of South Shore High School
                          To: June, 2002 graduates of South Shore High School
                                to Cherise Hall, Kenya Passin, and Ulysses Ruff.

Dear Dr. Thomas, 

In conformity with our donative intentions set forth in our April 10, 2002 letter to Alyson Cooke, Executive Director of Children's First Fund, we have enclosed our check for $1,800.00 made payable to South Shore High School. The $1,800.00 should be divided up and presented on or before graduation to the following students in the percentages as set out below:

              1. Fifty percent (50% or $900.00) thereof to CHERISE HALL, who is graduating with the top grade point average in the June, 2002 South Shore High School class.

              2. Thirty percent (30% or $600.00) thereof to KENYA PASSIN, who is graduating with the second best grade point average in the June, 2002 South Shore High School class.

              3. Twenty percent (20% or $300.00) thereof to ULYSSES RUFF, who is graduating with the third best grade point average in the June, 2002 South Shore High School class.

We hope that these gifts to these three outstanding South Shore High School students will be helpful in enabling each of them to take advantage of educational opportunities they were not otherwise have been able pursue.

 Respectfully,

 Dorothea Benjamin

******************************************************************
Also, keep in mind that at the Saturday night dinner, an additional $500.00 was collected and given to Dr. Larry Thomas (Principal) for the Mr. and Ms. scholarship fund which he talked about with us.  So, thus far, we have contributed $2,300.00 in scholarship funds to the June, 2002 class of South Shore High School.  This exceeded our original goal by over 100%, as we had originally estimated that about $1,000.00 would be collected
