Nathan Gentry Memorial Scholarship & Blood Drive
May 21, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$15.00
Hello, my name is Nora Day. In June of 2012, I established the Nathan Gentry Memorial Scholarship Fund. I also started an annual blood drive along with the scholarship fund. This is in memory of my 18 year old son, Nathan Gentry, who was killed tragically on May 19, 2012 (6 days prior to his high school graduation from Brownsburg High School). He was to attend IU Bloomington in the fall of 2012; his major was to be in education and he planned to become a history teacher.Nathan loved helping others and we saw this as an opportunity to continue to help others in his memory! We will do a benefit ride (motorcycle ride via the American Legion Riders), and upon returning to the Legion we will have a meal and the blood drive, and everything is open to the public. In 2015, we donated 51 pints of blood, and last year we were able to donate 47 pints of blood.The event this year is May 21, 2017 and will be held at the American Legion Post 331 from 10am-3pm. It is open to the public and we are expecting 100+ people in attendance this year!
