In 2014, just three days short of finishing her junior year at West Linn High School, 17-year-old Maddi Riley Higgins' life ended as a passenger in a completely preventable fatal car crash.

Maddi, who proudly wore the No. 5 jersey, was a two-time “All State” softball player, a shining athlete in the outfield and behind the plate. While she was well known in softball circles for her feisty, tenacious, 'no fear’ style of play, she may have been better known off the field for her tender, compassionate heart, her fiery, spunky spirit and her desire to bring joy and happiness to others.

Maddi’s life had an enormous impact on many other lives. When she was 'stolen home' on June 9th, 2014, her wish to be an organ donor created a flawlessly executed 'final play' and ultimately saved “5” other lives. May we always remember this beautiful “angel in the outfield” and ascribe to the “Maddi Higgins Playbook” by committing to making the world a better place by never settling, never quitting and always giving fully of ourselves.

Since Maddi’s death, we have learned that car crashes are the leading cause of death amongst teens (16-19) in the U.S.. Consider Maddi’s mantra on how to choose to live a well-balanced, generous life. M.A.D.D.I. = Make a Difference, Actively Participate, Drive Responsibly, Donate Life, Impact Others

An undetermined number of scholarships will be awarded annually. The amount of each scholarship and the number of scholarships awarded each year is dependent on the amount of funds received and the number of scholarship applications received.

Maddi’s mom, Carrie Higgins, Founder-Sales Manager of wine and spirits label printing specialist, CRUSH Creative Packaging, has devoted every effort to help raise awareness about Teen Safe Driving since her loss.

A very special wine to support these efforts was made possible through the efforts of Anne Ebenreiter Hubatch from Helioterra Wines, Leah Jorgensen from her Eponymous Cellars, Andrea La Rue at Nectar Graphics and Tom Schaad at August Cellars.

Also available are sport shirts that Carrie designed.

Proceeds from sales of wine and shirts will be donated to the Long Live Maddi – Say Yes to Life Memorial Scholarship and Educational Fund which honors Maddi’s life and keeps her legacy alive.
