At Dream Maker Pins, we believe in the power of education and the impact it can have on people's lives. That's why we were thrilled to partner with The Giovanni Vitrano Scholarship Foundation in 2022 as their merch sponsor, providing enamel pins and silicone wristbands for their fundraising efforts.

The Giovanni Vitrano Scholarship Foundation was established in 2021 in honor of the late Giovanni Vitrano, a beloved member of the Tallahassee soccer community. Their goal is to provide opportunities for those in the Tallahassee soccer community who may not have had them before. With the Class of 2023, the foundation announced that it will be awarding $10,000 in scholarships, with $6,000 going to the first place winner. Last year's winner, Alejandro Alonso, a first-generation college student now attending Florida State University, is a testament to the impact their scholarship can have on the lives of these young athletes.

At Dream Maker Pins, we are proud to have played a small role in supporting the foundation's mission by providing the enamel pins and silicone wristbands that helped raise funds for scholarships. We understand the importance of investing in the future of our youth, and the role that education plays in achieving that. We believe that by supporting the foundation, we are not only helping these student-athletes financially but also providing them with the support they need to achieve their goals.

We also understand that not every nonprofit has the resources to effectively fundraise, that's why we want to educate other nonprofits about the benefits of using enamel pins and silicone wristbands as a way to raise funds. These items are not only easy to customize but also a great way to raise awareness about a cause. If you are interested in learning more about how we can help your nonprofit reach its fundraising goals, please don't hesitate to contact us.

We encourage you to visit the foundation's website, gvscholarship.com, to learn more about their mission and how you can support it. Every donation, no matter how small, will help them in their quest to provide opportunities for the members of the Tallahassee soccer community. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these young athletes and honor the memory of Giovanni Vitrano.
