Founder Anthony Demasi reflects on the success of the Emergent Scholar Awards Banquet
On February 28th at 4:00 p.m. the Beta Sole Foundation had met with Angie in Mount Pleasant's favorite local radio station 95.3. We were proud to share our upcoming events with Angie, who was thrilled to hear details.
The first community outreach program we mentioned was the Ambassador Program. We will have 8 ambassadors meet with us once a month to discuss any upcoming and current events or projects. These ambassadors will show initiative, creativity, and enthusiasm in our foundation. They will receive a stipend of $500 a semester, we will pay by semester for the college students involved in the program. Our intent is to benefit both our ambassadors and our foundation.
On a final note, we mentioned an upcoming workshop for the students in our foundation. This is a summer camp/ technology workshop with three categories: Robotics, Coding Cyber Security and Video Production. Students will choose which category they would like to proceed with and we will showcase their work at the end of the camp.
The Beta Sole Foundation would love to share the enthusiasm that took place at our event called, ‘An Elf’s Christmas.’ We planned this event with the help of Big Brothers and Big Sisters Organization to provide a very merry Christmas, for the kids of their organization. Our foundation provided: rollerblades/ roller-skates, tokens for the arcade, bingo for the families, pizza for lunch, stockings, and presents for the kids. This event took place at the Northside Hansen Arena, where we also set up a step-and-repeat banner, with each sponsors Corporate logo. The attendees of the event loved the Hollywood feel and we had professional photos taken in front of the signage.
After the event, we received several mentions of gratitude, letters from parents, and great responses from the kids. We are proud to be a part of the Mid-Michigan community and spread beneficence. We hope to host this event in the years to come.
This past summer our dedicated team went to Brighton, MI to compete in the Social Entrepreneur Lake Trust Foundation Scholarship and Shark Tank Competition. We received notification that we qualified for this grant opportunity and placed in the top 10 to compete in this competition. We are pleased to announce that we won the competition and have received a $5000 award to help our mentorship program! we would like to thank Lake Trust Credit Union for this opportunity and support. We are excited to pursue our endeavors with you in the future.
