The 2016 Unique Club Scholarship Awards Dinner was held in August at La Pizzaria Restaurant. Unique Club is a Stark County-based organization comprised of men of Italian descent that raises money to award scholarships every year to college-bound students of Italian descent. There were 10 $1,000 scholarships awarded this year. Overall, the organization has awarded more than a half-million dollars in scholarships. Ben Stoffer, the current scholarship chairman, presented previous scholarship chairman Joe Vitale with a plaque on behalf of the club showing the club’s appreciation for his service.
