The tribute was a memorable day filled with unity and celebration.

PROVIDENCE, RI — The first annual John Hazen White III Memorial Tribute was held under sunny skies on Saturday, April 27, at Narragansett Brewery. The memorable day was filled with unity and celebration. Participants included Taco employees, family members, friends, and valued partners at Community Preparatory School.

The event began with a one-mile walk/run, symbolizing the participants' shared commitment to the  community and its well-being. The slogan, “Come Walk or Run in Memory of Maddie’s Daddy,” provided a special, heartfelt incentive.

Following the walk/run, the festivities continued at the brewery, where attendees enjoyed live music, food, and camaraderie. It was a time to reflect on the impact of John Hazen White III's legacy and to honor his vision of making a positive difference in the lives of others.

“Seeing everyone here today means so much to us,” said Kate White, Corporate Social Responsibility Partner at Taco. “This is exactly the type of event that John would have loved—an opportunity to spend time together with family and friends for such a wonderful cause. We wish he was still here, but we know he lives on in all of us,” she mused.

John H. White, Jr., Executive Chairman and Owner of Taco, reflected on the day. “Today’s event was truly special. Sharing time together with friends, family and the Taco community is the perfect way to celebrate John’s life and the joy he brought to all those who knew him,” said White.

“We are so thankful for everyone joining us here to pay tribute to John,” said Ben White, Program Manager, Business Operations at Taco. “He made us all better people and continues to have a positive impact on our lives. As we have been saying, love is not a big enough word when it comes to John,” he concluded.

The company invites others to consider donating to the John Hazen White III Endowed Scholarship fund at Community Preparatory School. Donations will help continue John H. White III's legacy of empowering young minds and transforming lives. Details on how to donate can be found at https://bit.ly/44inhTJ.
