Hi, I'm Allison, owner of the fresh pasta restaurant Pasta Louise in Park Slope. Named after my two nieces, Jasmine Rose and Scarlet Rose, The Pasta Rose Scholarship will be a yearly scholarship awarded to Brooklyn students who have lost a parent to cancer.
In 2018, I lost my sister, Lenore, to cancer. When she was 37 she was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer, and although the doctors thought she had a few weeks to live, she fought it for six years. She left behind two young daughters, Jasmine and Scarlet.
Lenore was a lawyer and worked for the Administration for Children's Services in Queens, where she fought tirelessly for the rights of children. She felt everything deeply, and had a way of making everyone she met feel like the most special person in the room.
Having the strength and resilience to go on after losing a parent at a young age is no easy task. This scholarship will help those kids who have lost so much... help them go to college, help them succeed, help them feel just a little bit better.
There are a few ways you can help, too. You can donate to The Pasta Rose Scholarship here...and you can also donate by booking a pasta demo at Pasta Louise, and by looking out for our fundraising events at the restaurant. Thank you so much for your contribution!
