Maggie Palilonis

Miss Maggie Foundation

In her honor, we give back to the those who follow her path!

The Miss Maggie Foundation is a charity organization created in honor of our dear friend Maggie Palilonis. Maggie was a well-known member of the DRYL community, where she shared her love for boating with many; she proudly served as Miss Farragut Sportsmen's Association for five years, where she welcomed and introduced so many young girls to the amazing boating and pageant experience. In honor of Maggie, we plan to give back to those who follow a similar path like hers.

Our Mission

The Miss Maggie Foundation was founded with the mission to help further the education of those who follow Maggie’s path. Maggie was a committed member of the Delaware River Yachtsmen League. She spent her time fishing, swimming, and making memories aboard her boat “Miss Maggie”. With the support from you, we want to be able to financially assist students who are members and/or those affiliated with the DRYL.

Miss Maggie Scholarship Fund

This foundation is fully committed to honoring our beloved daughter, sister, and friend. Margaret (Maggie) Palilonis tragically passed away on January 23rd, 2021. Maggie was a caring girl who would stop anything she was doing to help someone in need. It is only fitting that we honor her with a scholarship fund that will continue to help students for years to come.
