In 1947, Entre Nous presented the first scholarship to Inez Johnson for nursing school and secure employment in Manatee County when she completed her studies. Since that first scholarship was awarded, Entre Nous has awarded over $720,000 to hundreds of high school and adult students enabling them to further their education for college, trade school, or post-graduate school.
Today, the funds are solely derived by the Club's annual fundraiser. This year's fundraiser was the Festival of Trees. All the proceeds are from generous sponsors, donations of decorated trees, wreaths and other holiday items paired off with packages filled with adventures, vacations, services, and wonderful items.
If you would like to participate in the Scholarship Program as a supporter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 941 479-0813.
