J. Gavin Bradley Culinary/Hospitality Scholarship Fund

Gavin Bradley, son of Jayne Keating and Jim Bradley and stepson of Thomas Keating, MD, died unexpectedly on November 21, 2018. He was just 41 years old and was a loving husband to Soo Bradley. Gavin was a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef and loved cooking for family and friends. He traveled the world extensively, solo and with Soo. In his memory, Soo and the Keatings established the J. Gavin Bradley Culinary/Hospitality Scholarship Fund. The Fund will support scholarships to students from high schools located in Isabella, Midland or Saginaw County who are planning to pursue a culinary/hospitality career.

More details coming soon.
