Dominion Investment Group recently contributed to local scholarship to benefit the second annual Aaron Project Golf Tournament. The tournament was able to raise over $24,000 through golfer participation, sponsors, raffles, silent auctions and generous donations. Dominion contributed to the cause through their Silver Sponsorship level and by donating a set of DV8 golf clubs to be raffled.
The Aaron Project will fund fifteen $1,000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors in St. Lucie County. “The Golden Cleat Award” was given to eight deserving high school students nominated by his/her coach. And the remaining monies will be given to teachers to help fund classroom expenses this Fall.
The Aaron Project was conceived out of the tragic loss of 9-year-old Aaron Beauchamp on March 26, 2012 in a bus accident that took his life and injured a number of other St. Lucie County children on their way home from school.
The Beauchamp family and their friends wish to honor the memory of Aaron, who was a leader in all aspects of his life: academically, athletically, and artistically. The Aaron Project’s goal is to annually award monetary college scholarships to deserving St. Lucie County high school seniors who desire to further their educations, even as Aaron’s own life was tragically cut short.
