Sharon Sambito honored the legacy of her late friend Steve Ciccolini by establishing the Steve Ciccolini Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Steve tragically passed away in March of 2021, a victim of the COVID-19 pandemic. He was a well-known and talented saxophone player and musician, and his impressive musical career spanned five decades. As such, a music scholarship fund in his memory seemed a fitting tribute.
“When he passed so quickly, those of us who knew him were reeling with emotion,” Sharon said. “Be
cause of COVID, we couldn’t come together to remember him.” When COVID restrictions were loosened, Sharon was determined to do something special to commemorate his life and his legacy.
