Matthew J. Palace Memorial Award

Matthew Palace Award

Established in 2023, by his many friends at the Boys & Girls Club of the Bellport Area, and supported by his family, the Matthew J. Palace Memorial Award recognizes the Club member who, upon graduation from high school, best exemplifies the traits that made Matt so beloved in his community. His commitment to quality, his community spirit, and his ready smile made him welcome everywhere and it is that legacy this Award honors and sustains.

A committee of Board members and staff at the Club will select the awardee in consultation with Matt’s family. The Award will be given annually at the end-of-year awards ceremony at Bellport High School. Award money can be used to further the member’s education, whether they go to college or trade school, or to prepare them to enter the workforce.
