Local 3 Cs Memorial Scholarship fundraiser July 12 in South Bend

SOUTH BEND — Hacienda at Erskine Plaza on Miami Road in South Bend has offered to help raise money for the 3 Cs program. From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. July 12, anyone that takes a coupon in will automatically have 20 percent of their bill given to the 3 Cs. Coupons will be passed out at the Bremen Firemen’s Festival parade and at the fair.
The 3 Cs Memorial Scholarship was started in 2003. Oct. 24 of that year, Carey Jones, Casey Miller and Chad Beeson were volunteering for the Bremen Football team when the truck they were driving was hit head-on by a drunk driver. Since then the organization has given 23, $1,000 scholarships to winners from Bremen and throughout the area.
