About Us

Dear Supporter,

My name is Don Kennedy. On October 1, 2006, my son, Bryce, made the choice to get in the truck with a friend who had been drinking. Consequently this choice cost Bryce his life. Bryce was only 19 and in the prime of his life. In the spring of 2008 after sharing my family’s story at a Shattered Dreams program at Hawley High School, I realized the impact it made on the students. I was inspired to start Bryce Kennedy Memorial, Inc. with family and friends.

Educational Alcohol Awareness programs such as Shattered Dreams can be costly. The main purpose of Bryce Kennedy Memorial, Inc. is to raise money to provide funds to schools or organizations to host programs about underage drinking, impaired driving, alcohol awareness, and prevention.

On October 11, 2008, the First Annual Bryce Kennedy Memorial, Shattered Clays for Shattered Dreams, Sporting Clay Event was held. Funds from our annual event have been used to provide Shattered Dreams Programs in schools, academic scholarships for Shattered Dreams participants, sponsored community events regarding alcohol awareness, provided funds to Project Graduation and purchase teaching aids such as “drunk goggles” to use at events and for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.

We are planning for our 10th Annual event sponsored by Crooked Cross Ranch to be held August 19, 2017. Registration begins at 7:30am. Round 1 at 8:30, Round 2 at 11:00, Lunch at 11:00, Round 3 if needed, at 1:30 at Abilene Clay Sports. The Evening Event starts at 6:30pm at the Abilene Civic Center. Our evening will include dinner sponsored by Texas Roadhouse, dessert bar sponsored by The Flour Shop, music by Tredwater sponsored by United Supermarkets, shooter awards, and a silent auction.

We raise money through sponsorships, donations and participation in our sporting clay event. We are asking for your support for our continuing effort to educate about the dangers of underage drinking and impaired driving, alcohol awareness, and prevention. Please consider partnering with us for our upcoming event. Bryce Kennedy Memorial, Inc. is a 501c3 organization and your donation may be tax deductible. Together we can make a difference.

Thank you,
Don Kennedy
Chairman, Bryce Kennedy Memorial Inc.

Note from Mom:

I just want to say thanks for all of the support that we have had. As Bryce's mom the loss that I have feared most since Bryce's death has been the loss of Bryce's memory. Bryce Kennedy Memorial is a tribute to a young man who loved people, loved the Lord and had a great enthusiasm for the outdoors. At the same time we are able to help others to learn about the dangers of drinking and driving and underage drinking.

Thank you,
Shawn Kennedy
