BGCD Members Attend Marr Family Catholic Schools Scholarship Ceremony: BGCD hosted the 27th Annual Marr Family Catholic Schools Scholarship ceremony last Thursday. 105 members were recognized totaling $100,000 in Scholarship aid. In partnership with the Archdiocese of Boston, the fund has recognized over 1,800 scholars and distributed over $1.2 million in financial assistance to BGCD members attending Catholic Schools.

The program began in 1992 with a gift from the estate of the late Daniel Marr, Jr, who helped found the Club back in 1974 with his brother Robert L. Marr. This year the fund was augmented by a Gift from Robert to ensure more deserving BGCD members were included. Our thanks to Robert L. Marr and the entire Marr Family for their continued support of our Club members and their families.
