Part of being a Boston College student and alumni is the social responsibility of helping those in need. We here at BC Interruption follow the same principle. So when one of our readers hooked us into a memorial golf tournament to benefit a BC scholarship fund, we jumped at the opportunity to let you our readers know more about it.
Kevin's Fund was created by the Eidt family as a memorial for BC student Kevin Eidt:
I wanted to pass along some information that I would hope you'd consider promoting in some fashion if you think it is appropriate. My brother Kevin was a member of the class of 2000 when he passed away playing intramural basketball at the Plex in January 1997. My family responded, in part, with a memorial scholarship fund that gives out annual awards in our hometown of Norwalk, CT and at Boston College. Details of the Fund background, awards, and commitments can be found at www.kevinsfund.org.
Each year they help out a student, and have helped numerous students pay to attend Boston College and students to attend other colleges as well. How can you help? Easy, there are two ways to help:
This year the 13th annual Kevin Eidt Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament is Sunday October 2nd at Wayland Country Club (Wayland, MA). The golf outing is the primary funding source of an annual scholarship, currently worth $15,000 a year, in the CSOM Honors Program. We also currently have a junior at BC from Norwalk on a $120,000 award.
In addition to the regular registration for golfers we have a pair of BC FSU tickets (Section EE, 3rd Row, 45 yard line) available by auction. I know lots of tickets are available for cheap but this one comes with a middle campus parking pass! More information is available on the golf outing specific site is: http://www.kevinsfund.org/golf/ or they can contact me (Christian) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If anyone can participate, please do. Even if you can't donate to the fund or try and win the FSU tickets. We know it's short notice, but it's a great opportunity to help out a very worthy cause.
