The Abe Solomon Scholarship Fund, sponsored by the Bergen County Central Trades & Labor Council, AFL-CIO, Inc., has for the last forty-four years, awarded two hundred eighteen scholarships to union members and their families. We do this to ease the burden on union families trying to cope with the ever-increasing cost of a college or post-high school educational program. Our scholarships are given in honor of two men who were part of the labor movement in Bergen County. Abe Solomon was a past President and a leader in the early years of this Labor Council. Ed Purtill was a past Director of the United Labor Agency of Bergen County, and was passionate about community service. We are proud to honor these two giants of our labor history.

The cost of the dinner will be $60.00 per person, or $600.00 per table of ten. Please make all checks payable to the Abe Solomon Scholarship Fund. All proceeds will go to the Scholarship Fund for future awards.

Thank you in advance for your continued support, not only from the Bergen CLC and the Scholarship Trustees, but also from the recipients of these scholarships.
