The Nicholas C. Carter Memorial Scholarship Foundation was formed to honor the memory of our dear friend. Every year, one highly deserving high school student is chosen from the Redlands area to receive a scholarship in the name of Nicholas Carter. Through the donation of many throughout our community and the fundraising of our annual event, we have become one of the premiere scholarships given out in Redlands.

To Play!

We are excited to return for our 9th year of great friends, great food, and a wonderful afternoon of poker. All are welcome and you don’t have to worry about your poker skill level. Every year, we have scholarship foundation members positioned at every table to help all new players, even those who have never played before.

Along with a fantastic day of poker, we have door prizes, raffles prizes, in-game prizes and the final table wins prizes valued over $1000.  All players and spectators will be served dinner from Gourmet Pizza Shoppe of Redlands and the Moose Lodge bar will be open for the event.

Doors open at 1:00 pm, Saturday, November 30th.  Tournament begins promptly at 2:00 pm.  Tickets are available now online via PayPal as well as by cash or check.

Mission Statement

The Nicholas C. Carter Memorial Scholarship Foundation honors the memory of Nicholas C. Carter by awarding an annual scholarship to one Redlands High School student who exhibits some of the interests and qualities he possessed, including, but not limited to: soccer, the culinary arts, military service, integrity, ambitiousness, loyalty and friendship.


Thanks to the ongoing success of our fundraising event, our scholarship is now up to $1,000 each year.  We have already become one of the largest scholarships given out in Redlands! This scholarship will be awarded to a graduating Redlands Senior High School male who has lettered in junior varsity or varsity soccer.  Preference will be given to students who share Nicholas Carter’s passion for soccer, culinary arts and/or military service.  Applicants should present a 1 or 2 page informal essay demonstrating the impact that one of these interests has had in their life.  The essay is intended to shed light upon the student’s passions rather than provide a proficiency in writing.  Applicants should feel free to include humor, recount personal events or find other creative ways to let their personality be the focus of the essay.
