Major Alister C. McGregor Memorial Fund
 17th Annual Golf Tournament

Dear Friend,

The Board of Directors of the Major Alister C. McGregor Memorial Fund would like to thank all our Sponsors and Donors for their caring and generosity over the past 17 years. We are pleased to announce that for the 5th year, the Major Alister C. McGregor Annual Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at Crestwood Country Club, located at 90 Wheeler Street, Rehoboth, Massachusetts on Monday, September 10th 2018. As in the past, the proceeds from the Tournament will be used to provide scholarships through the McGregor Endowment at Roger Williams University, and to support youth activities and programs designated by the McGregor Charities.   

Over the past 17 years, our partnership has provided scholarships to the sons, daughters and extended family members of fallen police officers from the New England region. Over the years, we have continued our main mission to fund the McGregor Scholarship Endowment at Roger Williams University and to help and support projects and charities to help those in need. Through your kindness and generosity our partnership has been able to make a difference in the lives and the futures of so many – all in the name of a man who is still in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.   

As we do every year, we are hoping that you will support our annual fundraiser in the form of a donation, tee/flag sponsorship, or by entering a foursome to play in the Tournament. Enclosed with this letter is a donation, sponsorship and tournament participant form. Please, fill it out and forward it along with your donation, sponsorship and/or fees to: The McGregor Memorial Fund, 105 Waterman Avenue #287, East Providence RI, 02914. As in the past, foursomes will be awarded on a first-come/first-served basis. The Tournament fills to full capacity very quickly, so return your entries early. The McGregor Fund is a recognized 501 [c] [3]. Your donation is tax deductible.

On behalf of the members of the McGregor Family, the East Providence Police Department, Roger Williams University, Board of Directors and our law enforcement family, partners and friends – thank you so very much.

Golf Tournament Update

Dear Donors, Sponsors and Golfers,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your caring and generosity. After 16 years, we are all still keeping the Foundation, memory and legacy of Al McGregor alive. I would also like to acknowledge the ACM Board of Directors for their work: Attorney Andrew Berg, Lt. Tom Rush, Lt. Jim Nelson, Sgt Ken Luke, Sgt. Darren Ellinwood, Sgt. Todd Poland, Det. Cpl. Kevin Feeney, Paul Feeney and especially Stacy Feeney. We are still looking down the road toward our 20 year milestone.

In this past year, the money raised has continued to fund the McGregor Endowment at Roger Williams University, helped to support the Myron Francis Playground Project, provided opportunities to first-time offenders through the ‘Open Doors’ initiative, and contributed to Rhode Island Special Olympics events and more. Thank you all, again, for your support of the Fund and our children.

Now it is time to hold our breath and pray for good weather on September 11th.  Golfers, here is the information that you need concerning the McGregor Tournament:

15-Year Memorial Message

The McGregor Family, the Board of Directors of the ACM5 Fund, Roger Williams University and those that the Fund has supported over the years would like to thank all our donors, sponsors, volunteers and supporters for your generosity, time and commitment to keeping alive the memory of Alister McGregor. Over the years, your support and friendship has helped so many that have needed financial assitance and emotional support.

Today, as we take time to reflect back on the days prior to, and after that day of December 27th, 2001; our recollections remain so very vivid in our minds. For some, the past 15 years have passed very quickly, for others not so. Not everyone that we meet in our lives will hold a special significance. This time of year holds a special meaning for those special people. All that have had Al touch their lives have that special place in their hearts and thoughts. So please, on this day, say a prayer for Al and all those special people that have been lost to us to let them know how much we miss them.

Have a Safe and Happy New Year!
