  • August 2013
    The anniversary of Luka's passing is on August 6th. Luka loved the Strombolis at Coley's Pizza in Pembroke Pines. In honor of Luka, Coley's Pizza will be selling the "Luka" Stromboli during the entire month of August. A portion of proceeds from every "Luka" sold will be donated to the "Luka Balenovic Memorial Scholarship Fund" at Florida Gulf Coast University.

  • July 2013. Installation of Luka's Memorial bench at FGCU
    Beautiful visit at Florida Gulf Coast University. Judith Cassidy at FGCU showed us the Memorial Bench that has been installed at the waterfront. It is a beautiful spot facing the lake, between two palm trees.

    Judith informed us that they have chosen the first candidate who will receive The Luka Balenovic Memorial Scholarship. We will meet the recipient at an event on campus in November. The recipient is a she, majoring in Criminal Justice, with the intention of becoming a police officer in homicide.

  • June 2013. Endowment Update
    It is with the utmost gratitude and humility that we announce we have reached the $10,000 mark for Luka's endowment. This is a momentous day for us as this is the minimum amount required to lock in a permanent, yearly scholarship at Luka's Alma Mater, Florida Gulf Coast University. Thanks to your overwhelming generosity, the first Luka Balenovic Memorial Scholarship will be awarded this fall to a Criminal Justice student who intends on pursuing a career in law enforcement. The Endowment Fund lists all the contributors as well as Luka's website: Endowment

    Thank you all so very, very much for graciously contributing and honoring Luka's life and memory. We will forever be grateful.
