Edward M. Bartholomew, Jr. Memorial Fund Benefit Raises Nearly $10K

GLENS FALLS — Nearly $10,000 was raised to benefit the newly-established Edward M. Bartholomew, Jr. Memorial Fund following a disc golf tournament Sept. 17 at Crandall Park.

The event was staged by EDC Warren County and the family of Edward Bartholomew, and the fund will benefit internships at Warren County nonprofits and small businesses.

The winners of the tournament for the men’s and women’s divisions were Tyler Calazada (shot a 44) and Karly Daly (shot a 58). Par for this course is 55. Calazada said, “this is my personal best at this course.”

The Edward M. Bartholomew, Jr. Memorial Fund, informally called “The Ed,” was established in 2021 by EDC Warren County and the Bartholomew family to honor the EDC’s former President and Glens Falls’ former Mayor, carrying forth his legacy of dedication to public service, his passion for the community, and his enthusiasm for economic development by investing in the next generation of leadership. 

The Ed provides funding for paid internships for students, veterans and people with differing abilities at Warren County nonprofits and small businesses, matching interns with internship locations twice yearly. 

The fund is held under the umbrella of the Glens Falls Foundation, overseen by EDC Warren County and the Bartholomew family along with an independent appointee from the community.
