Storage Unit Fire Caused Non-Profit to Scramble to put on the 2nd Annual Basketball Tournament honoring hero teacher murdered in the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida in 2018.

Despite most of the needed equipment inaccessible and probably destroyed or damaged due to a storage unit fire last week, The Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund held its 2nd Annual Buckets 4 Beigel Basketball Tournament at North Shore Day Camp on Saturday May 11th.  With the help of local businesses, Buckets4Beigel was able to go forward.    Buckets 4 Beigel raises funds for the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund through an all-day round robin style tournament.  Participating camps include Tyler Hill, Timber Lake, Chen-O-Wanda, Pontiac, Trails End, Greylock, and Kennybrook.   Families and friends cheer on the games throughout the day.  

Founder of SJBMF and mother of Scott Beigel, Linda Beigel Schulman remarked:  “My son Scott was a hero on that tragic Valentines Day in 2018.  He sacrificed his life after saving the lives of 31 of his students.   The fund was created in his honor to change the lives of at risk, underserved children touched by gun violence, many of whom reside here on Long Island”. 

“I am proud to host Buckets 4 Beigel, where campers compete and raise funds for this noble cause,” remarked Jay Jacobs, owner of TLC Camps. 

The Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund is changing the lives of children through Scott’s legacy. The fund is a 501(c)(3) organization.
