The National Puerto Rican Day Parade (NPRDP) announces its' 3rd Annual Golf Outing. Can you help me share this fantastic event and
attend this great event. The proceeds of this event go towards our scholarship program.
NPRDP established the Scholarship Program to promote the pursuit of higher education in the Puerto Rican community. Last year, the organization broke its all time record for total number and dollar amount of scholarships to be awarded (100 scholarships valued at $2,000 each, for a total $200,000). This was the largest number of scholarships in its history and a 20-fold increase since 2013, when the organization awarded 5 scholarships. The scholarships are awarded to exceptional students of Puerto Rican descent who are making a difference in their communities. The number of applications received in 2018 has been more than triple the number submitted last year, with students representing 19 states and Puerto Rico.
As stated on our webpage, The National Puerto Rican Day Parade (NPRDP) is the largest demonstration of cultural pride in the nation. Now in its 61st year, the parade takes place from 44th Street to 79th Street along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, in honor of the 3.5 million inhabitants of Puerto Rico and over 5 million people residing in the United States.
Reborn in 2014, our programs and events focus on promoting Culture, Arts and Education, with special tributes to prominent, historical figures and campaigns to raise awareness of important issues in the community. We are also committed to advancing the pursuit of higher education, awarding scholarships to students of Puerto Rican descent
Therefore, we would be honored to celebrate our past, present and future with you at the Pelham Bay Golf Course in May 10, 2018.
Please help celebrate and support the NPRDP College Kids Rising Stars Scholarship Program!!! Details:
