ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. — Sunday, June 12 marks six years since the Pulse Nightclub tragedy that took the lives of 49 people.
The onePULSE Foundation, a nonprofit established to honor and preserve the legacy of those killed, announced the awarding of one of 49 Legacy Scholarships on Monday.
Thuy-Thuong Nguyen of Davie, Florida was on hand at CITY Furniture’s Altamonte Springs showroom to accept a $10,000 onePULSE Legacy Scholarship in honor of Tevin Crosby.
The scholarship is part of the furniture retailer’s goal to make a continuous and lasting impact on equality and acceptance in the community.
Nguyen is working toward their dream of achieving a Master of Public Health degree in epidemiology at Florida International University.
In 2019, working with the families and loved ones of those killed, onePULSE Foundation set up scholarships based on the victims’ interests and dreams, to help others who share those dreams make an impact on the world.
CITY’s multi-year partnership with the onePULSE Foundation is one of many initiatives included in CITY’s 5% Giving Pledge, which dedicates a minimum of 5% of the company’s net profits annually to build stronger communities.
