The SPUD Open Memorial Golf Tournament was created to honor David J Yellen with the purpose of providing help to those in the special needs community, and to students throughout their education. Having had a longstanding relationship with the Special Olympics and the Lisbon Public Schools, the David J Yellen Memorial Scholarship Fund was created to help encourage students to live successful lives through their education and provide aid to the Special Olympics.

ABOUT US >

THE DAVID J YELLEN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND

There were two things in life that David loved the most: making a difference in the lives of others and having a great time with his friends and family.
David dedicated over 30 years of his life to Special Education, trying to impact the lives of each and every one he met. To carry on his motto of “Making a Difference”, David's son created the David J Yellen Memorial Scholarship Fund.

This fund will benefit students of the Lisbon Public Schools, with proceeds also going to the Special Olympics - an organization that held an important place in David's heart. 
 

OUR CONNECTION WITH THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS

David J Yellen dedicated over 30 years of his life to Special Education and created strong ties with the Connecticut chapter of the Special Olympics. To honor this connection and keep it alive, proceeds of the David J Yellen Scholarship Fund will go to the Special Olympics of Connecticut to help continue to "make a difference" in the lives of those in the special needs community.
