Following Daniels death in Iraq on April 6,2007, the Fuentes Family immediately set up a Memorial Scholarship Fund in his honor at Island Trees High School. Danny graduated from the high school in 2005 and joined the Army to serve our country. For his heroism, he was awarded with the Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. He is always remembered and missed by all of us fortunate enough to have known him.

Each year, the Fuentes Family holds a fundraiser to be able to continue awarding scholarships in Danny's name. To date, 36 students have received these scholarships totaling over $11,000. The date for this years fundraiser is June 13, 2014 at South Levittown Lanes from 6pm-9pm.

The fundraiser is dedicated to Army Specialist Daniel A. Fuentes and his service and sacrifice to our country. The Fuentes Family also honors all soldiers who have lost their lives while protecing our country and to all wounded soldiers and veterans.

Thank you very much for your interest in this worthy cause. It is through your efforts that we are able to keep Danny's wonderful spirit with us always.
