Daytona State College Foundation teams up with Jeep Beach to raise money for scholarships with “Jeep Beach Scholarship Parade” as part of DSC Homecoming

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (October 26, 2023) The Daytona State College Foundation and Jeep Beach celebrated a new scholarship program Friday, October 6 with the “Jeep Beach Scholarship Parade” as part of Daytona State’s Homecoming festivities.

“Jeep Beach has supported the L. Gale Lemerand Entrepreneurial Speaker Series Scholarship, the annual Foundation Gala and the Jeep Beach Rated Restaurants: Where the Locals Eat tasting event,” said Foundation Vice President Tim Norton. “Jeep Beach’s organizers and participants appreciate the value of supporting education, and their contributions will go a long way toward helping our students succeed.” 

Jeep Beach has contributed more than $25,000 in direct and indirect support to students attending Daytona State College over the years. 

Jeep Beach, which attracted 225,000 visitors and more than 25,000 Jeeps to Daytona Beach this year for their annual April event, enlisted the Foundation as host of the inaugural “Jeep Beach Rated Restaurants: Where the Locals Eat” tasting event which was a smashing success. 

Proceeds from the tasting event enabled boys and girls from the area immediately surrounding the College’s main campus to attend summer athletic camps for free, provided scholarships for students in need of affordable housing while attending DSC this year, and supported the Boys & Girls Clubs of Volusia-Flagler Counties Youth of the Year program. 

The Daytona State College Foundation and Jeep Beach are proud to partner again in 2024 to host the second annual event on April 21 at the College’s News-Journal Center located on Beach Street in downtown Daytona Beach. More information can be found at or
