Timothy S Y Lam Foundation


Thank You

Thanks to the Timothy S Y Lam Foundation Scholarship, I was able to achieve one of my long time career and personal goals. Obtaining my CPCE was something I have had my eyes on since college and first getting involved with the National Association for Catering and Events. All of my mentors throughout the industry had this designation and I knew it was something special that set them apart from everyone else and really established credibility. Being awarded this scholarship took away the financial barrier that was keeping me from becoming certified and I am so thankful for the opportunity! - Andy Bomberger
Thank you for your generosity of awarding me a scholarship for the CMP Certification.  Your contribution has given me leverage to further my skills and prepare me for the future.  Thank you once again for the financial support.  You have a wonderful foundation, and I am extremely grateful. ~Katie Harmon
 ”I am so grateful for the support your foundation provided to help me to pursue this endeavor. The support you have provided will allow me to continue to advance my now 5+ years of experience within the event industry. Thank you very much.”~Caitlin Galluzzo

  "There aren't enough ways to express my gratitude to the Timothy S Y Lam Foundation.  No better feeling than being given an opportunity to further my education.  Receiving my Executive Diploma was well worth all my sleepless nights, stressful days, and tears of joy and sadness.  Again, a million thanks to the Timothy S Y Lam Foundation."  ~Marichu Santos
  "I am so honored and humble by your gracious gift, please know that from the bottom of my heart I will always be thankful. I plan to use my Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) to help others learn about events. I have the pleasure of working with some amazing students at UCLA. They are like sponges learning the about the entire world of do’s and don’ts in event planning.
Leading by example is my style of management, so when I become a CMP I know that I will encourage my student staff as well. It is my way of giving back. They are already amazed that I would take on all of the studying with the hours we work in Events.

 "Again, I am honored and will always be grateful for my scholarship. I wish all of you at the Timothy SY Lam Foundation great happiness, peace and blessings forever."  ~Ronni D. Savage

 “After relocating cross country, at the age of 24, I was concerned with making connections in my chosen field of study. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the Timothy S Y Lam Foundation for opening the door to my greatest networking opportunity thus far.  My recent experience, sponsored by the foundation, has allowed me to grow both as a student and as a professional. I cannot be more grateful for this amazing support by the foundation. Thank you.”  ~Natalie Joseph
 "I would like to thank all of you at the Timothy S Y Lam Foundation for the privilege of receiving the travel grant. I am in the process of a career change into event planning and this grant gave me the opportunity to be able to attend the NACE Experience. Attending this conference gave me networking connections with professionals in the industry and the inspiration to become a leading professional in the event industry. Without this grant it would not have been possible for me to attend the conference, and I cannot express enough gratitude for your generosity."  ~Megan Kinkade
