"Tracey Gamer-Fanning was an amazing woman who led an incredible life while living with a Brain Tumor. She exemplified what true living should be, and even better, what giving back really means. Tracey loved community and she loved food and we are delighted to announce The Tracey Gamer Fanning Memorial Scholarship.
This scholarship will support Connecticut students of all levels who are affected by brain tumors, either directly or through their immediate family, and who desire to expand their knowledge in the food industry. These individuals could be chefs, restaurateurs, farmers, food scientists, food manufacturers, food chemists or entrepreneurs with a clear course of study in the industry. Join us today, plant a seed and grow a new sense of hope in memory of her and for the hope that you just can't stop believin." - Greg Shimer
