Locals turned out tonight at Freewheel Brewing Company, which the late Malcolm McGinnis opened with a number of co-partners four years ago.
Malcolm, who passed away in September, was active as a lacrosse coach at Menlo-Atherton High School, where his son Duncan played. Daughter Lauren, a senior at M-A, has also been involved in athletics at M-A.
M-A athletic director Steven Kryger told us that in honor of Malcolm, the school is establishing the Menlo-Atherton Boys Varsity Head, Heart and Balls Scholarship award, which was the focus of the fundraising event at Freewheel tonight.
An annual award of $1,000 will go the senior who demonstrates over the course of his career the qualities that Coach McGinnis stressed: an exceptional player who exemplifies awareness and knowledge (head), leadership and honor (heart), and sacrifice and competitive spirit (balls).
People who didn’t attend tonight’s event can donate by making checks out to Menlo-Atherton Boys Lacrosse (reference Coach McGinnis Scholarship Fund). Mail to: Steven Kryger, 555 Middlefield Road, Atherton, CA 94027.
