Howard Bacharach served for more than a decade as executive director of the Atlantic City Hotel & Lodging Association where he coordinated many fund-raising events to support the association’s education and scholarship program.

After his death in 2014, his wife created the scholarship foundation to continue his work.

“His passion was to raise scholarship money,” she said. “I wanted to keep it going in his name.”

Nugent said $25,000 will establish the endowment, and the additional $1,000 will be awarded to a student.

“The extra $1,000 was so that we could start it immediately,” Nugent said.
