Our event was created to celebrate the legacy of Dennis M. Lynch, Jr. and to raise funds for the Memorial Scholarship fund in his name at Saint Raphael Academy in Pawtucket. Dennis was a dynamic student leader at SRA and was Valedictorian of the Class of 1974. After graduating from Providence College in 1978, Dennis returned to his beloved "Academy" serving as Head Basketball Coach of the Boy’s team. He was an example of selfless dedication and determination for many student athletes. Hundreds more continue to be the beneficiary of the financial assistance the DML Jr ’74 Memorial Scholarship Fund provides.
