Brian E. Wagner Scholarship Continues Annual Tradition


The BEWSF held their 4th annual “Bags for Wags” Tournament at Visitation’s Valentino Center. The event sold out and over forty teams were present to pay tribute to Brian’s life and to enjoy the evening’s festivities. “Mamma Maria’s “, who was Brian’s part time employer when he was growing up, generously donated pizzas to all attendees. This year introduced an extreme raffle that featured premium prizes like: autographed memorabilia from the Chicago Blackhawks, Bears Cubs and Whitesox; plus a VIP Nascar package. Over $4000 was collected at the fundraiser. All proceeds will benefit the college scholarship which will be granted to high school seniors prior to graduation this spring. This distinguished award provides funding toward tuition costs to those who epitomize Brian’s finest qualities: integrity, perseverance and compassion. Brian’s mother, Barbara Wagner-Lackey stated, "Bags for Wags was a big success and great fun! We will be able to award 3 deserving students help with their first semester college costs. Thank you to everyone who came out to support this event. It is a remarkable tribute to our son and brother."
