The Larry Berkowitz Arts Scholarship
The Berkowitz Fine Arts Fund was created by the Larry Berkowitz Family, honoring Larry, a 14 year member of the Buffalo Grove Singers, who passed away 7 years ago. To honor his many years with the Singers, his family established a fund to help children participate in the arts.
The Buffalo Grove Singers match the funds contributed by the family annually. With this Fund, we have given college bound students who are majoring in the arts scholarships, brought instruments to inner city schools, and even brought instruments to New York children after Hurricane Sandy. We have helped local schools in the area acquire equipment needed for their arts programs. We also help fund scholarships (through the Friends of the Parks Foundation), so that children can participate in classes in the arts. This year, we have partnered with the Marriott Theater organization and Vernon Township in giving 50 children a very special theater experience.
We are very excited to be involved in giving back to the community in many ways. We accept contributions on behalf of the Berkowitz Fine Arts Fund through the Friends of the Parks Foundation. Donations are graciously accepted and will be put to good use to fund many projects in the future.
