This memorial fund was established in memory of Billie Jo Turnure Bennett a 1986 graduate of the Egg Harbor Twp. High School. She had a passion for the performing arts during high school and beyond. Her many musical talents were a joy to all. Music was such an important part of who she was and her foundation was created to ensure that her love for the arts is carried on.
Each year the foundation will present a $1,000.00 scholarship to a student who has participated in the performing arts during high school.
How can you help? There are several opportunities! Each year we will hold a benefit concert in her memory which will be announced in our newsletter… if you have not already signed up please do so! Also, you can purchase any of the CD’s available on our web site, all of which feature Billie Jo’s Angelic voice. There are two CD’s of all original music written and performed by Billie Jo and Eddie, as well as a CD featuring Billie Jo with many of her Friends and Family. Or, you can become an annual donor, you can make a 1 time donation or even purchase a foundation T-shirt. Each year Billie Jo’s foundation T-shirts will feature a different quote from one of her original songs printed on the back. All donations are tax deductible, and you will be furnished with a receipt denoting the tax ID number for your tax records.
