Donate to the Daniel E. Richardson Fund of the Greece Chamber Charitable Foundation
One of our great community champions passed away two years ago. Daniel E. Richardson, owner of Braddock Bay Tavern & Grill, had been a very active, long-standing business member and former leader of the Greece Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Greece Rotary Club, the Boy Scouts, and the Greece Chamber Charitable Foundation Board of Directors, where he played a pivotal role in shaping and creating initiatives to support business training and mentorship experiences for young people.
In addition to his considerable involvement and support of our local community, Dan also supported international charitable causes, using - as just two examples - his pilot's license and small plane to fly to Haiti and provide humanitarian aid and to transport donated organs to various hospitals for urgently needed recipient transplants.
Dan was one of those rare individuals who is not afraid to innovate, to try new things, and who coupled his business acumen and business success with generosity and a strong commitment to his community.
In his memory and to create a legacy, we have established the Daniel E. Richardson Memorial Fund, under the umbrella of the Greece Chamber Charitable Foundation. Overseen by the Foundation Board of Directors and guided by a Fund Committee comprised of business and community volunteers including Dan's widow, Carol Richardson, The Daniel E. Richardson Memorial Fund will provide nursing education scholarships to students in our community. We are proud to be recognizing and extending the legacy of excellence in nursing that was such a central theme in Dan's life.
To date, we have received almost $7,000 in donations from a number of generous community residents and leaders. We thank each of them for their kindness and philanthropic support.
