Nick’s (S)mile of Quarters fundraiser all began with a simple fact: those who knew and loved Nick miss his unique, endearing and everlasting smile. It was priceless and his personality was infectious.  It has been said that some smiles are worth a million dollars, but Nick’s was-and-remains, invaluable.

Nick heroically chose to serve his country and ultimately gave his life, leaving us to honor his memory.  We honor his legacy through the Cpl. Nicholas Ott Memorial Fund which benefits the youth of Manchester in a variety of ways. In raising money to support this fund, we continue to spread Nick’s high-spirited enthusiasm for life.  That million dollar smile goal is lofty in deed so his friends decided to also honor his love of his school and symbolize his beloved football field with the realistic and fun task of placing a mile of quarters around the track. Please help them reach their goal of raising $15,000 – the approximate value of a (s)mile of quarters.
