Ludlam Avenue Park in Riverside will host a picnic and 3-on-3 basketball tournament Saturday afternoon to raise money for the scholarship honoring Demitri Hampton, a 21-year-old college student who was shot and killed during a Riverside home invasion in January.

The DQH Memorial Picnic, set to benefit the DQH Scholarship Fund, will feature music, food, raffles, and more, said Mr. Hampton’s brother, Jamal Davis.

“There will be a lot of family there, a lot of Demitri’s friends there,” Mr. Davis said. “We just want people to come out and support [the scholarship,] that’s all.”

The DQH scholarship Fund was founded by Mr. Hampton’s relatives and will be awarded to Riverhead High School students who are looking to attend Suffolk County Community College.

Mr. Davis said friends, family members, and former teachers and coaches have already contributed to the scholarship, which will be awarded next month.

“We do have it up and running,” he said. “We want to send out thanks to everyone who has given to the fund.”

The memorial picnic will run from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information about how to sign up for the basketball tournament, call (516) 355-8899 or email DQHScholarshipFund@gmail.com.

People can donate to the scholarship fund by mail at DQH Scholarship Fund, 57 Maple Avenue, Riverhead NY, 11901.

  • Congratulations to Chelsea on winning the FA Cup.

  • Thanks a lot for the helpful posting. It is also my belief that mesothelioma has an really long latency interval, which means that the signs of the disease may well not emerge right until 30 to 50 years after the preliminary exposure to asbestos fiber. Pleural mesothelioma, which is the most common style and affects the area within the lungs, could cause shortness of breath, chest pains, and a persistent coughing, which may produce coughing up blood.

  • I do enjoy the way you have presented this particular problem and it does indeed supply us a lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, coming from what precisely I have personally seen, I simply just hope as the feed-back stack on that folks continue to be on issue and don’t start on a tirade associated with some other news du jour. All the same, thank you for this fantastic point and although I do not necessarily go along with the idea in totality, I value the standpoint.

  • Hello! I just wish to give you a huge thumbs up for your excellent info you¡¯ve got right here on this post. I¡¯ll be coming back to your blog for more soon.

  • Perfect for that special someone on Valentine’s Day and Halloween!

  • All factory produced R3s might have the square headlight frames, as they have been created toward the close of production. This could become a engine built to R3 specs, even though I note it does not hold the multiple breathers or perhaps the cold air induction a real R3 would’ve. R1s and R2 blocks ended up black, when R3s might be red.

  • I totally dig this concept, but . . . who writes the to start with letters you fellas or us? (previously mentioned says, you fellas, even so the email I acquired just mentioned we compose them.) What on earth is the subject make a difference? Can we compose about whatever? I am able to consider it is a great deal cheaper than therapy or medication for a few people. Can we include images of our cats? How about recipes for vegan cupcakes? You can find a chance I might have appealing items to write about. What is the statistical probability the reader will care? Good thought! You are all awesome. Remember to suggest.

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
