RYE, N.Y. -- The Rye Police Association held its sixth annual Golf Classic Monday at the Apawamis Club to raise money for its scholarship fund for Rye High School students entering college.
"This is our way of giving back to the community," said Ptl. Michael Kenny.Over the past five years, the association has raised over $80,000 in scholarships. Kenny said that the association was able to provide six students with scholarships last year, up from four the previous year.
In addition to providing college scholarships, the money also goes toward providing financial assistance to families in crisis and supports community events, such as Heard In Rye, a speaker series on parenting strategies.The event brings in local residents and business owners to participate in a day of golf, barbecue and refreshments.Bob DiMaggio, owner of Brushworks of Rye, was there with several other Rye business owners to play a round of golf."They (the Rye Police Association) do great work in the community," said DiMaggio. "We get a little golf in, and they get some support." What do you think of the Rye Police Association's work in the community?
