DORCHESTER, MA — On September 17th, 2019, BGCD recognized 83 members during the 28th Marr Family Catholic Schools Scholarship Ceremony.

In partnership with the Archdiocese of Boston, the fund has recognized over 1,800 scholars and distributed over $1.34 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. For the second consecutive year the fund was augmented by a Gift from Robert to ensure more deserving BGCD members were included.

A special thanks to Robert L. Marr and the entire Marr Family for their continued support of our Club members and their families.
