The proceeds from the golf tournament were $7,500. Combined with previous donations from the Venice American Legion, the proceeds will sustain the veterans’ scholarships for more than six years. The scholarships stay with the students until they graduate, if they maintain satisfactory academic standing. The NO-VEL post has donated more than $20,000 in direct support of SCF Venice student veterans for the past six years. SCF Venice serves more than 100 veteran and veteran-dependent students. All together SCF serves about 300 student veterans and their dependents.
The NO-VEL Scholarship is limited strictly to veterans attending SCF Venice. Anyone interested in helping student veterans may donate to the SCF Foundation Veteran Scholarship.
