SARATOGA SPRINGS – In honor of Julie and Co. Realty’s second anniversary, and as a continued effort to give back to the community, the local brokerage donated a portion of its November closings to Saratoga Sponsor-a-Scholar (SSAS).

Jim LaVigne, the SSAS volunteer executive director, accepted the check on behalf of the program at Julie and Co. Realty’s sales meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 19. 

In a statement, LaVigne said, "It always amazes me what a generous community we live in and no one personifies that more than Sonny and Julie Bonacio. This gift was both unsolicited and extremely generous. It covers seven years’ expense for one of our young scholars and will make a tremendous difference in their life."

Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar is a 10-year-old nonprofit organization established to help financially disadvantaged young men and women in Saratoga Springs successfully complete high school and college.

In June of 2017, the seventh SSAS class graduated from Saratoga Springs High School. All 64 of the graduates in the first seven years were accepted to college. Many are the first in their families to do so. Of 34 SSAS students currently in high school, 22 are on the high honor roll or the honor roll.
