Jenni-Lyn Watson Memorial Golf Tournament

Remembering the Young Dancer & Providing Opportunities for Others

An "extraordinary, nurturing girl who cared strongly for those around her" is how Jenni-Lyn Watson's mother Jackie is remembering her daughter. An incredibly talented young lady taken too soon will never be forgotten by her family; but for the past six years, the community has come together to remember Jenni-Lyn Watson in an annual golf tournament.

All the proceeds from the tournament go to the Jenni-Lyn Memorial Fund and will be used to create opportunities for local children and teens that have a passion for the art of dance but cannot afford specialized training as well as enhancing the local dance community. Jenni-Lyn was a very talented dancer in her second year as a dance major at Mercyhurst College. To date, the tournament has raised over $115,500 for the memorial fund and the goal at this year's golf tournament is to sponsor a dancer attending a summer intensive program, begin sponsorship of dance lessons for 1-2 dancers locally and supporting our dance community.

The 7th Annual Jenni-Lyn Watson Memorial Golf Tournament is planned for Saturday, August 19th. It'll take place at FoxFire at the Village Green in Baldwinsville with a shotgun start at noon.  Learn moer or register by visiting
