Shrewsbury – The Board of Directors of The Shrewsbury Education Foundation (SEF), recently announced that Howard Grossman, of Grossman Development Group, LLC in Southborough will be “Presenting Sponsor” of its upcoming annual Recognitions Dinner Saturday, Jan. 23, at Cyprian Keyes Golf Club in Boylston.

Grossman, founder of Grossman Development Group, LLC, has over 35 years of commercial real estate experience specializing in retail leasing, development and investment sales. He has developed dozens of shopping centers throughout the northeast and is currently developing Lakeway Commons (former Spag’s property) in Shrewsbury.

“We are delighted to be able to be the Presenting Sponsor of this wonderful event,” Grossman said. “It’s a great cause and it just emphasizes our desire to be an integral part of the Shrewsbury community.”

“We couldn’t be more delighted to partner with Grossman Development and we welcome his redevelopment project as it will be a wonderful addition and asset to our community,” said SEF Co-President and event co-chair Chris Juetten. “Mr. Grossman’s commitment to Shrewsbury is genuine and we are very grateful for his support.”

The event will honor this year’s Grant and John P. Collins Awards for Excellence recipients given to Shrewsbury Public Schools faculty. Thirteen grants have been awarded for the 2015-2016 school year, totaling nearly 11,000. The SEF also recognizes the Community Service Honoree who has gone above and beyond in service to the schools. This year’s honoree is Beth Casavant. The event features a cocktail hour, sumptuous buffet, entertainment and cash bar.

Other contributors and sponsors for the 2015-2016 “Granting Opportunities” season included the Staples Foundation, Central One Federal Credit Union, and Blue Coast Coffee.

Shrewsbury Education Foundation (SEF) is an all-volunteer organization that raises money to fund grants which put resources and programs directly into the classroom. Annually, Shrewsbury Public School teachers write grant applications seeking funding for unique learning experiences and resources that will directly benefit students.

Tickets for the Annual Recognition Dinner are $70 and can be purchased online by visiting SEFGrants.org.
