BENEFITING SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS FOR CHILDREN OF LOCAL POLICE OFFICERS AND FIREFIGHTERS

 

On August 30, 2018 Hyatt Regency will hold the fourth Greenville Heroes: Serve & Protect Awards Luncheon to bring much deserved recognition to two local heroes and to benefit two existing scholarship funds for Greenville City Firefighters and City Police Officers.


Planned as an every other year event for the community, the Hero Among Heroes Award will be given at the luncheon to a firefighter and a police officer in recognition of his/her exceptional, professional dedication and service in Greenville.


DJ Rama, President and CEO of Auro Hotels, is serving as host of the event and chair of the fundraising endeavor. Rama said, “Greenville is a safe and wonderful place to live, and we know our first responders play a large role in making it so. Their hard work and dedication in our community is worthy of our admiration and appreciation. This community event will let our police officers, firefighters and their families know that we do not take their service for granted.”

Through 2018, a total of 560 scholarships totaling $872,726 have been granted from these two funds, and they remain essential sources of support for these students. The Greenville Heroes: Serve and Protect Awards Luncheon will enlarge the funding sources for each.
