The proceeds from this event funds 'The Oak Memorial Scholarship'. This college scholarship is available to any first generation immigrant American citizen or an American student who lost a parent in a violent act.
The goal of the scholarship is to provide assistance to dedicated young people who are facing the challenges and struggles of starting over. The program seeks to provide an opportunity for all of us to remember that we go through life but just once, dependent on one another and with a moral obligation to help each other in times of need.
