Memorial scholarship fund holds softball event

Northborough – The Michael Gould Memorial Scholarship Fund will benefit from a softball game fund-raiser beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday July 27, rain or shine, at the Robert E. Melican Middle School on Lincoln Street.

Michael, a lifelong resident of Northborough, died in July 2000, at the age of 19.

In his memory, the Gould family and Northborough/ Southborough's Algonquin Regional High School have set up the Michael Gould Memorial Scholarship Fund, which financially assists young students who have faced adversity and overcome it a healthy manner.

Food, beverages and raffle prizes are being donated by local businesses. Raffl e prizes include gift certificates, gift baskets and products.

Scholarship applicants write essays about hardships and adversities they have faced, overcome and grown from. Since the scholarship began, thanks to donations from members of the community, three scholarships have been awarded each year, ranging from $500 to $1,000.

This year the family and friends of Michael Gould are hosting the eighth annual softball game to raise more money for the scholarship fund. Over eight years, the scholarship fund has raised more than $15,000.

Donations to the scholarship fund are tax deductible.

Tickets for the event are available for $10, and are being sold by many individuals. For more information or tickets, call Maureen Gould at 508-395-8538.
