Tinsley Fund event aids scholarships   

Paoli, Pa. – Thanks in part to donations from home textiles vendors, The Crossroads School here raised $9,000 at a charity event dedicated to Shirley Tinsley, late wife of industry sales veteran Rusty Tinsley.

Tinsley, who died in an automobile accident in 2003, had been a secretary at the school. The Shirley Tinsley Scholarship Fund holds the fundraiser annually.
