July 27th, 2018, was truly a historic night for Dream Big Project! It was an incredible blessing to finally see our dream come to fruition! Being able to gift Scholarships to incredibly deserving young people has been our goal since the very beginning. Four years later, and here we are! And none of this would be possible if it weren’t for all of you like minded, compassionate, and kind human beings!
The time and effort that went into the making of this event a night to remember, were definitely worth seeing the smiles, hearing the belly laughs, and wiping away the tears after listening to the inspiring stories from our guest speakers! Cue the shout out to our beloved Norwalk Vice Mayor, Mrs. Margarita L. Rios for her leadership in our community and inspiring opening speech at our 1st Annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony.
It was amazing to see so many sweet faces come together to honor our beyond deserving young people with fun, and raise money for underprivileged youth in the city of Norwalk and surrounding communities. In fact, Norwalk’s very own Vice Mayor, Margarita L. Rios, was present to support and learn more about the impact we have on the lives of youth.
“When you bring a community together, great things can happen.”
For the past three years, we have been honored to serve alongside many parents, teachers, local citizens and businesses, and government officials to help change the world through local action. The most remarkable part of this is a community of people coming together for a greater cause. The change, or transformation, that comes from an entire community is something greater than what an individual can achieve. Only together, as a community, can we give beyond our individual means.
