On the night of February 11, 2001 a tragic tragic auto accident took the lives of Kyle Barden, Brendon Benner, and Milton Carter. The three were all Cleveland Heights Hockey players and friends since grade school. The Cleveland Heights community was shocked and saddened by the event, but has come together in many ways to honor their memory and support those things that meant so much to Kyle, Brendon, and Milton.
The Barden Benner Carter Memorial Fund was established to:
1. Award scholarships to college bound Cleveland Heights High School seniors;
2. Assist Cleveland Heights youth and high school hockey programs;
3. Fund and maintain permanent memorials for Kyle Barden, Brendon Benner, and Milton Carter and to establish any future memorials and event
In addition, the Foundation has supported increased awareness of traffic safety through the distribution of dashboard cards (shown above) to schools and teenagers throughout the Cleveland area.
