Woodman's of Essex : Celebrates College Book Week

08/06/2014 | 02:51pm US/Eastern

ESSEX, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 6, 2014) - Woodman's of Essex, where the very first fried clam in the world was invented, is celebrating their college-bound employees with College Book Week. And in honor of their 100th Anniversary, Woodman's is extending the celebration to their college-bound customers as well.

Customers who come in to Woodman's of Essex for lunch anytime between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, August 11 through August 15 and show their college ID or college enrollment letter will be entered into a daily drawing which will happen at 2 p.m. There will be one customer winner and one employee winner each day, and prizes include up to $100 gift cards to Bed, Bath & Beyond, Staples, and Amazon. There will also be college-bound goodie bags and additional raffles for our employees donated by Bed, Bath & Beyond.

The celebration is directly tied to the Mr. & Mrs. L. Dexter Woodman Scholarship Fund, which to date has awarded more than $675,000 to more than 110 deserving students and educational initiatives.

"We're thrilled to honor Dexter and Gini Woodman with College Book Week," says Stephen Woodman, co-CEO and third-generation owner of Woodman's. "Dexter and Gini truly wanted young people to succeed. They wanted to help kids with their secondary education, and with these efforts, so do we."

This year's Woodman's college scholarships as well as the Woodman's Employee College Book Money program are helping kids go to NYU, the University of Delaware, Villanova, Syracuse, Florida State University, George Washington University, the University of Pittsburgh, Duke, and UNH. The fund will also continue to provide support for a number of local organizations, including the North Shore Chamber of Commerce, the Essex Lions Club, Prep at Pingree, the Massachusetts Restaurant Association, and others.
