About the Torie Fund

On October 21, 2004 Victoria "Torie" Snelgrove attended a Red Sox celebration in Boston and was tragically killed. In her memory the Snelgrove family has set up a memorial fund. Torie's dream was to pursue a career in broadcast journalism.

It is the goal of the Victoria Snelgrove Memorial Fund to award scholarships benefiting East Bridgewater High School, Massachusetts and Emerson College of Boston, students who have the same dream.

Since establishing The Fund in 2005, we have worked hard to fulfill the mission set before us to keep Torie’s spirit alive:
  • Funded two $500.00 scholarships for East Bridgewater High School seniors annually
  • Funded an endowment at Emerson College for students who share Torie’s dream of a career in broadcast journalism
  • Funded and helped construct “Torie’s Place”, a playground at the Spring Street School in West Bridgewater
  • Funded and helped construct “Torie’s Place Too” a community/school playground at the Gordon Mitchell Middle School in East Bridgewater
  • Funded and helped construct “Torie’s Place III” a community playground in North Easton
  • Funded and helped construct our 4th playground “Torie’s Place IV” at the Treehouse Village, a community for foster care children in Northampton
  • Funded and helped construct our 5th playground at the Brookfield School in Brockton, “Torie’s Place V”
  • Donated four (4) leather glider rockers to the NICU at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital
  • Various donations to individuals to assist them in community endeavors.

Warm jackets, winter snow boots, hats, scarves and gloves were the most requested items asked for from parents of growing children; items they coud not afford to purchase themselves.
