MOOERS Darcy Manors death was a true tragedy. Not only did he leave behind a young widow, Heather, he left two young sons as well.
To keep Manors memory and love of children alive, the Ellenburg Kiwanis Club is setting up a scholarship fund. The Gibson Brothers are playing a benefit concert at Northern Adirondack Central School with proceeds going toward that fund on June 24 at 2 p.m.
Meanwhile some other family and friends want to make sure his two surviving young sons, Jake and Evan, get a good education. They have been working out details for a benefit golf tournament to be held Aug. 19 at the North Country Golf Club, in Champlain. Proceeds from the tournament will be given to the family to be placed in a trust fund to be used for college or trade school.
To enter the cost is $60 per person, which includes golf, cart and hamburgers and hotdogs.
There will also be 50/50 tickets, Mulligans that can be purchased and betting on hole 6. Also available is a Four-Man Scramble with a combined handicap at a minimum of 30.
There will be cash prizes awarded to first, second and third place winners.
