Ryder Buck Foundation Scholarship Recipients Honored

Local residents Chris and Shelley Buck hosted a backyard concert to benefit the Ryder Buck Memorial Scholarship Foundation, a newly formed nonprofit. Nearly 300 people turned out to honor the Bucks’ late son, Ryder, a singer-songwriter and guitarist. His band, Ryder Buck and the Breakers, played Ryder’s original songs to an enthusiastic crowd. Seven of the foundation’s scholarship recipients were introduced, and 2014 La Cañada High School graduate Blake Scott spoke about what music and this scholarship have meant and how Ryder’s music has inspired him. Donations to the foundation can be mailed to 466 Foothill Blvd., No. 374, La Cañada Flintridge, 91011.
