The fund was established in the memory of Lorne William Bennett who was an advocate, mentor, coach, and father figure to the children in the community which he resided. Created by his daughter, Trevena Bennett, the fund not only honors his legacy but will also enable Lorne’s vision for others to thrive academically and athletically to remain alive.

 

Mr. Bennett was instrumental in the development and establishment of the AAU Union Panthers Basketball League which has been actively housed in the Boys and Girls Club in Union, New Jersey for the past five years. Mr. Bennett served as Director and coach for the Union Rams Football Club as well as a coach and active supporter of the Boys and Girls Club. His life revolved around cultivating the lives’ of the young people in his community.
