The Scott Weingard Memorial Fund was started by his family and friends and is supported by the fundraising done by the Play Ball weekend participants. For 2010/ 2011, the funds mission is to contribute the majority of proceeds raised to Autism Speaks.
Through 2008, as part of Greg Richards, Larry Polatsch and Scott Weingard Memorial Fund (“GLS Memorial Fund”) we participated in donating more than $550,000 to the University of Michigan to permanently endow two Dean's Merit Scholarships (see www.glsmemorialfund.com). In addition, we have donated more than $200,000 to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
