On May 19, 2008, a tragic house fire took the lives of the Reis family and stunned both the Byron and Bergen communities. Sherry, Ginny, Emily, and Tim Reis were active community members that had a positive, lasting effect on all that knew the family.

The Reis Memorial Scholarship Foundation is proud to announce the second annual Reis Memorial Casino Night. Please consider helping us to honor the memory of the Reis family on September 6 at 6 p.m.!

Registration is from 6 to 7 p.m. Casino activities: 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the South Byron Fire Department, located at 7389 Route 237 in South Byron, NY 14557.

The Reis Memorial Scholarship Foundation was established in 2014 to commemorate the family through funding of charitable causes. In the past year, the foundation has funded a scholarship for a deserving senior from Byron-Bergen Class of 2014, shown appreciation to local volunteer fire departments, and assisted community members in need.

Your contribution to the second annual Reis Family Memorial Casino Night will make a difference and be used for a good cause. It will assist us in providing a yearly scholarship in remembrance of the family and in contributing to the community causes in the family's name

You can support our event through sponsorship, prize donation, or attendance at this exciting casino event. Your contribution is appreciated and will be acknowledged at the event.

For more information, please contact Brendan Lougheed, president of the Reis Memorial Scholarship Foundation, at (585) 721-8955 or [email protected] 

Thank you for your support in remembering and honoring this amazing family.

This Saturday is Summer in the City. I'll be there for at least some of the event walking around and taking pictures.

I'm going to be looking for people wearing T-shirts that say "The Batavian" on them.

We've sold a couple hundred shirts over the years.

The seventh person I spot wearing their The Batavian T-shirt will get a $100 bill.
