BTB Foundation

Expands Giving with Academic Scholarship Opportunity


February 1, 2018


Mt. Prospect, IL. – What began as simply sponsoring a friend at a cancer charity walk, grew into a charitable foundation that brings fun, competition and fundraising together.


The BTB Foundation began in 2002 by Tom and Bill Latourette. The mission of the BTB Foundation is to award financial assistance as well as provide emotional support to individuals from the Chicagoland area that experience hardships due to cancer or a cancer-related illness.


This year, the foundation is pleased to announce a new charitable opportunity with the Vincent J. Vittore Memorial Scholarship. Vince passed away in 2017 from a Glioblastoma brain tumor. This scholarship is in honor of the enthusiasm, humor and strength that Vince displayed during his life, for his love for family, friends and great journalism.


The Vincent J. Vittore Memorial Scholarship will award two $5,000 scholarships to eligible individuals impacted by Cancer for the academic year 2018-2019.
