On December 16, 2016, the George Snow Scholarship Fund and the community of Boca Raton lost one of its great ladies after a courageous battle with cancer. Mary and the Veccia and Babione families are our organization’s most loyal and enthusiastic supporters. While Mary was here on this earth she humbly and modestly filled our world with countless acts of service. Her legacy will live on in her family and the students who have benefited from her generosity. The Scholarship Fund family is deeply saddened with her loss, but rejoices that she is reunited with her dad in Heaven as they celebrate eternal life with our Lord.
Her memory lives on through the creation of the endowed Mary Babione Veccia Memorial Scholarship Fund. This substantial scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving female student who embodies the same spirit of service to others that Mary Babione Veccia had throughout her short life.
