As a loving husband, adoring father, devoted son, cherished brother and good friend, Tommy Dowd was beloved by those who knew him. When his life was tragically torn away on 9/11, leaving his family, friends and community in deep grief, they vowed to continue his legacy of kindness, in memory of how he lived and what he meant to us all. As part of that, the Monroe Senior Softball League began holding charity Softball Tournaments in 2002. Originally established as a scholarship fund for deserving college bound student athletes in the Monroe-Woodbury area, the Foundation is growing to meet other needs that embody Tommy Dowd’s spirit and dedication to living life to the fullest. To realize those goals, the Board is developing new, year round fund raising activities. The Board of Directors determines deserving male and female scholarship recipients based on information received from the applicants. The Board also seeks ways to address other local causes and issues, including the assistance of military families in need. To date, $30,000 in Scholarships has been awarded to Monroe Woodbury High School students and additional sums have been donated to other worthy causes. The Foundation is a Non-Profit 501 (c) (3) Organization.
