Scholarship

Every year, in August, motorcyclists meet at the horseshoe entrance in front of Williamsville North for a memorial motorcycle ride and benefit to raise money for this scholarship. This $1000 scholarship was designed to be given to a deserving student from W.N.H.S. who exemplifies the essence of Jon’s character. Any additional funds are donated to WNY Heroes in order to help them serve and support our WNY military heroes and their families.
