(BLACK PR WIRE) – Florida Memorial University (FMU) is hosting their 12th Annual Scholarship Gala on Friday, September 27, 2013 with honorary guest Miami HEAT Champion Dwyane Wade.

The Gala’s Lead Sponsor is D. Stephenson Construction, Inc.

“Education is very important to me and I am happy to lend my support in raising funds for scholarships to allow students to pursue their dreams by focusing on their education and not their financial concerns,” said Dwyane Wade.

“In addition to raising dollars to support our students, we will also honor and recognize community leaders that have helped to advance the mission of FMU,” said Dr. Adriene Wright, FMU’s Vice President for Institutional Advancement.
