According to the National Center for Education Statistics, about 16.8 million students were enrolled in a community college or university in 2019. Unfortunately, we continue to hear how expensive and unaffordable college is. Let’s not even get into the topic of student debt.
Furthering your education can sometimes seem impossible unless you take out loans, receive scholarships, or have financial assistance.
On Sunday, November 3rd, the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee held their yearly “Brunch on the Bay.” This event helps sponsor USF students in achieving their goals, aspirations, and further their education. The support from local communities and businesses helps in making a huge difference for these students.
AMOB was able to assist and attend this wonderful event and provided the delicious lobsters for brunch.
Supporting education and sponsoring young students allows them to continue their education and expand their knowledge without having the burden of being thousands of dollars in debt.
In December of 2018, we held our fifth and final Horne & Moon Social. This fundraiser was created to raise money for scholarships that go to adults wanting to return to school. Over the years, we have proudly raised more than $500,000, which will generate scholarships for the next 10 years!
These students are going to be our future businessmen/women, doctors, chefs, and entrepreneurs. Why not help them succeed?
