he Gouché Foundation announced that it will be hosting its 1st Annual College Signing Day & Scholarship Awards Luncheon, awarding $12,000 in college scholarships to inner city youth. The ceremony will take place on July 14, 2018 from 12-5pm at the California Yacht Club Cabrillo in San Pedro, CA. The luncheon will end with twelve high school graduates walking away with scholarships totaling $1k each, in an effort to assist them on their path to higher education.
The Gouché Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to create scholarship opportunities for inner city at-risk youth, while promoting the importance of education through Entrepreneurship and Financial Literacy. “Our society Celebrates our kid’s athletic accomplishments and too often we gloss over their academic achievements. The Gouché Foundation wants to RE-write that narrative to celebrate our future Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Educators and business leaders,” says Gouché Foundation founder Nick Gouché.
The event is free of charge and attendees should expect a full-on celebration, that will include a red carpet, live music and lots of entertainment. “We will celebrate these young Kings and Queens as if they were going to the NBA, NFL, etc.,” a spokesperson of the foundation said in an online interview. “We are asking our community to come out to this event as we celebrate them on their journey to college.”
