Lindsey’s Family Restaurant is preparing to host our annual Buzzy Lindsey & Shon Shadrick Charity Golf Open on October 5th 2022, in support of the Shon Shadrick Memorial Scholarship Foundation. This foundation is one very close to our hearts as it was created in honor of owner Cheryl Lindsey’s nephew.
Shon Shadrick was born with Down Syndrome and graduated from Brockton High School in 1992. He participated annually in the Special Olympics where he won several medals. He worked at Bridgewater State College and was a prep cook at Lindsey’s Family Restaurant, bringing light and love to all he encountered. After a long battle with leukemia, Shon passed away on December 15, 2005.
In honor of Shon’s memory, Mrs. Lindsey created the Shon Shadrick Memorial Scholarship in order to provide a $5,000 scholarship to an outstanding young person pursuing a degree in Special Education. For many of our previous recipients, this generous scholarship has been a determining factor in their ability to attain a degree and become an educator in this challenging and rewarding field. Our charity golf tournament is the main fundraiser for this life-changing scholarship that ensures a brighter tomorrow for our Special Needs youth.
