The Theresa Fund
The 2013 Yonkers Idol and Yonkers Junior Idol will each receive a $1000. The prize money is from UPAC’s Theresa Fund. Theresa Sansone was a lifelong resident of the City of Yonkers. Her family came to Yonkers at the turn of the century. She was educated in the Yonkers Public Schools and graduated from Commerce High School. Theresa had a special place in her heart for all children and she adored them.
When Steve Sansone, son of Theresa and Former President of the Untermyer Performing Arts Council, heard about the Yonkers Idol Search he stated “It is a fitting tribute that the Theresa Funds can help advance talented children that can represent the City of Yonkers at all their functions.”
It is an honor for Untermyer Performing Arts Council to award the winners with this special fund.
