Higgins Memorial Street Hockey Arena – Farragut Road between East Broadway and East Second Street.  As Donny’s Memorial Fund has grown and matured, it supports not only South Boston Youth Sports Programs, but also worthwhile youth programs all over Boston and Vicinity – 13 in number, ranging from community centers to team sports to individual athletics – sailing, boxing, and so on.

Donny Higgins, a devoted family man and an all-‘round, cheerful good guy, succumbed to cancer of the colon when he was a youthful 37 years of age.  He had as a young boy persuaded the DCR to turn an existing tennis court into a facility suitable for street hockey.  Whatever he did set a standard for others to follow – father, husband, neighbor, outstanding citizen.  Donny’s memory is still an inspiration.  Your support will help keep his memory always alive.
