Money is raised from Healey Tourney, which is dedicated to preserving the memory of Joseph F. Healey. a noted local head pro and former basketball official.

Proceeds raised annually are awarded in the form of merit scholarships to high achieving college-bound students based a combination of criteria – grades, community service, leadership roles, talent, and extracurricular activities.
