Hoffman DiMuzio Scholarship Fund

Woodbury, NJ April 16, 2015
For Immediate Release

The law firm of Hoffman DiMuzio has allocated over a quarter of a million dollars to its Community Service Scholarship fund. For the next decade, the Hoffman DiMuzio Community Service Scholarship Foundation will award “Gift of the Heart” scholarships to 28 students (one male and one female) graduating from every Gloucester County high school.

Each recipient shall be rewarded with a one thousand dollar scholarship for personifying the service ideals encouraged by the “Gift of the Heart” scholarship program. This week, the 2015 Hoffman DiMuzio Community Service Scholarship recipients are: EMILY SAYER and GIAVANNI SCARAVAGLIONE RIZZO, from Pitman High School.

Emily Sayer


Congrats Emily on receiving your scholarship award!

It is a widely known fact that the young can learn from the old. Emily, conversely, in frequently working with Senior citizens demonstrates that perhaps the old can also learn from the young, as she frequently volunteers with Senior citizens playing bingo. In spring, she also participates in the Spring Fling Dance for Elders, decorating, and mingling with area resident senior citizens.

Additionally, Emily is a regular at Joe’s place, serving meals to the needy in Camden, New Jersey since entering high school. She has made cards for the hospitalized and collected coupons to benefit our soldiers. If you have participated in the Pitman High School Blood Drive this year, you may have met Emily, handing out snacks, checking people in and cleaning up at the end of the event, after making phone calls before to garner successful blood donor support. As you can see, helping others is Emily’s way. Great work Emily!

Giavanni Scaravaglione Rizzo


Congratulations to 2015 Hoffman DiMuzio Scholarship Winner Giavanni Rizzo from Pitman High School.

Giavanni cares about his community and his volunteer service supports this. If you are familiar with Pitman High School’s tennis team, it is easy to see that Giavanni is a skilled member of the team, having received recognition playing varsity tennis throughout his years at Pitman High School. However what you might not know is that in addition to playing tennis, Giavanni has participated in the annual Pitman Tennis Court Cleanup, the Pitman Tennis Railroad Track Cleanup and regularly volunteers for the Pitman tennis concession stand. He also participates in the Pitman Food Pantry distributing food to those in need.

Singled out as a leader in his community, Giavanni was selected to represent his school to work with the Gloucester Regional Addictive Substance Prevention Coalition, also known as GRASP, to educate others as to the dangers of drug abuse through various community projects. Giavanni is also a two -year member of the National Honor Society and Key Club, helping others while maintaining good grades. He would like to attend college and enhance his skills for community development. Thank you for your sincere commitment to your community Giavanni!

Congratulations are extended to Pitman High School students Emily Sayer and Gianni Scaravaglione Rizzo, as well as their proud parents, family and friends!

Next week, the Hoffman DiMuzio Community Service featured scholarship recipients are from Washington Township High School.

He more than delivered on that commitment. If you are considering a legal firm, go no further, Hoffman-DiMuzio needs to be your choice."
