KendalL Karaoke
The annual Kendall Madison Foundation Karaoke Night takes place Friday at 8 PM at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett. Expect prizes for the best female, male, and group performances, plus best costume. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.

The Kendall Madison Foundation was formed in 2000 to provide more than just an annual scholarship. The foundation provides financial contributions to help the East End community, such as The Kendall Madison Fitness Center, as well as financial assistance for the purpose of enhancing the student-athlete experience.

The Kendall Madison Scholarship Fund was established in 1995 in memory of Kendall Madison, a model student-athlete who died at the age of 21. Madison was beloved by the East End and UCONN community and the scholarship was created in his honor to reward a male and female student athlete who exemplify Kendall’s core characteristic of being a role model, not only in sports but community service and academics as well.
