Making the World a Better Place For All of Us
Our story started in 1978, when Joe and Dianne DeMarco went through one of the hardest things in life, the loss of a loved one, their son Joseph III. They took that loss and turned it into a celebration where each year we get to honor Joseph with awarding a graduating Senior from Audubon High School with a scholarship in young Joe’s name. Our Committee dedicates their time, resources and their passion to make sure the tournament goes on each year.
The Joseph L. Demarco, III Memorial Golf Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Joseph L. DeMarco III. The golf tournament funds a scholarship which is presented to an Audubon High School senior at graduation. The recipient must demonstrate character, leadership and dedication to the golf team or other school activities. The recipient must also demonstrate academic achievement.
Scholarship Funds Awarded
We have been so lucky to have been able to award over $575,000 in scholarships.
Over the past 44 years, we had 45 great scholarship recipients.
With the help of our Community, Audubon Schools, Parents, Friends and Family, our volunteers help us put on of the best golf tournaments each year!
Since 1978 we have been providing a Senior from Audubon High School with a Scholarship for College.
A Letter from the Chairman
We hope that everyone and their families are enjoying summer! As summer is among us, our Committee is hard at work planning our 44th Joseph L. DeMarco III Memorial Golf Tournament! This is something we would have not been able to accomplish without your help, THANK YOU! One thing we can always rely on is the continued support from all of you.
Our story started in 1978, when Joe and Dianne went through one of the hardest things in life, the loss of their son, Joseph III. They took that pain and turned it into a celebration where each year we honor Joseph by awarding a graduating Senior from Audubon High School with a $25,000.00 Scholarship in young Joe’s memory. Our Committee dedicates it’s time, resources and passion to make sure we host the best Golf Tournament possible year after year.
Right before graduation, our Committee went through our Blind-Selection Process, to select our new recipient who most exemplifies the character of young Joe. From the AHS Class of 2022, we would like to welcome Ryan Clarke to the DeMarco Family as our 44th recipient! Ryan is continuing his education at Syracuse University.
This year’s Tournament will be held on Wednesday, September 14th, 2022 at Medford Village Country Club. Enclosed is a brochure with all the details. The course is beautiful, the food is spectacular and you will not want to miss out on our prize table and other fun activities! We do expect to have a full field again this year, so our recommendation is to reserve your spot early for this great event. Please help us keep this going by telling your friends, co-workers, and relatives about it and get them to come out and join us to support this great cause! You can read more information on our website www.DeMarcoMemorialGolf.org and connect with us by “Liking” us on Facebook at DeMarcoMemorialGolf.
