SSPI-Mid Atlantic Winter Fundraiser
Thursday, January 24 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20
The annual SSPI Winter Scholarship Fundraising and Networking Party is coming up. The highlight of the event is the raffle and silent auction which helps raise the most funds. All proceeds from SSPI events go towards the scholarship fund supporting local schools. Over the past eleven years, SSPI Mid-Atlantic has raised more than $130,000 net proceeds for students pursuing fields of study in the satellite and aerospace industries! Approximately $55,000 of that came from our Winter Fundraisers alone, with more than $47,000 being generated from our Annual Golf Tournaments.
This year’s event will have past scholarship winners in attendance as well a very special guest speaker!
We have disbursed approximately $126,000 towards the Prize Competition and Scholarship awards to local universities and spent more than $20,000 on member appreciation events. The Winter event is our largest fund-raising opportunity of the year and made possible by donations by satellite industry companies and your participation.

Proceeds: All funds raised from SSPI events help support the SSPI Mid-Atlantic scholarship fund and student engagement program. These efforts with George Mason University, George Washington University, and the University of MD have been able to fund scholarships for students pursuing degrees related to the satellite industry and as prizes for those participating in the SSPI Prize competition where students present topics related to the Space and Satellite industry.
SSPI-MA hopes to involve more schools as we move forward so your support is greatly supported.
