For Immediate Release
Sebastian Inlet, Florida
20th Annual Doctors Lawyers Weekend Warriors Surf Festival
January 4, 2013
This will be the last (or second to last communication) from Doctors Lawyers Weekend Warriors. In September we concluded our 20th Annual Doctors Lawyers Weekend Warriors Surf Festival at Sebastian Inlet and it was such a great success that this year, instead of awarding one $500.00 scholarship in the name of Mama G (Lorraine Guthrie), Doctor’s Lawyers Weekend Warriors and the family of Mama G, are pleased to announce that we will be awarding three (3) $1000.00 scholarships. They will be made available to Brevard County or Indian River County students intending to pursue education in either the visual arts or teaching.
“As we have concluded our very successful 20 year run with Doctors Lawyers Weekend Warriors, we thought it was appropriate to utilize the money we raised to contribute to the Mama G Scholarship Fund and honor the memory of Mama G with these awards”, said Harry Greenfield, one of the founders of the event. “Jack, Don and I are so happy to be able to announce that we will be awarding three (3) $1000.00 scholarships to deserving Brevard and/or Indian River students who intend to pursue education in fields dear to Mama G”.
Mama G, known to the surf community as a fabulous surf photographer, a devoted mom and an encouraging supporter of all surfers at Sebastian Inlet, left a lasting legacy and Doctors Lawyers Weekend Warriors is proud to be able to offer these scholarships in her name.
“The family is so happy and honored to have Doctors Lawyers Weekend Warriors offer these scholarships. Mom would be really stoked” said Matt Guthrie, one of her children.
The scholarships will be awarded April 1, 2013. Applications must be received by March 1, 2013.
