Scranton PA shoot out logo

The Martin A. Nonnenberg Tragedy Fund was founded in January 2004, by a group of caring people who want to give something back to the community and keep the memory of a very missed boy alive.

Martin A. Nonnenberg passed away in a tragic accident at the young age of 10.  Throughout his short life Martin excelled in education and had a passion for sports.

Life teaches us that most families and loved ones that suffer a tragic event never truly recover.  Families are split up, siblings get lost in life and need support.  The list of hardships go on and on.

The founders of this memorial are survivors of the tragic event that took Martin's life on October 7, 1994.  Realizing they are a part of a very elite group of people involved in a tragedy they grew strong, close and have a new respect for life. 

The Martin A. Nonnenberg Tragedy Fund will host it’s Sixth annual event to help families in our community cope with tragedy.

(Day to be announced)  March 2009 there will be a 3 Point Shoot Out for children ages 9-18.  The event will take place at the Holy Rosary Hall, on Market Street in North Scranton.

 In (2008) over $9,000.00 was raised and will go on to support  families during the (2008) Christmas season.

We are asking you to get involved with us in order to give back to the less fortunate.  Please make a sponsorship donation to help make this event a success.  All proceeds will be put into a Tragedy Fund to be distributed to families in our community who are suffering from tragedies.
