EVENT DATE: Oct 02, 2016
Me, the Bride-to-be, founded the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, D.Y.M.O.N in the Rough (Dynamic Young Minorities of Nashville) in September of 2012; and Groom-to-be has been the ultimate supporter since day one! This cause is very important to us.
D.Y.M.O.N's Mission: We are committed to providing a safe haven for inner city and minority youth as we refine, enrich, and empower them through mentorship, community outreach, and scholarships
D.Y.M.O.N's Vision: To help individuals cultivate high self-esteem, achieve scholastic excellence, and attain fulfillment in life realizing their full potential and purpose. In addition to these ideas, we financially support individuals desiring elevated education all across the United States.
This cause is important to both of us, and we have seen how mentoring dozens of inner city and minority youth in our community, and thus far awarding 10 scholarships impacts so many aspects of the young lives that we encounter. We have been able to change lives on a small scale, and we look forward to impacting our community on a larger scale!
Thank you for your support, and please be sure to visit www.dymonintherough.com to learn more about D.Y.M.O.N in the Rough's scholarships, mentoring program, and community outreach!
About the Grant
The funds that we raise will afford us the opportunity to raise our $2,000 scholarships to $4,000 scholarships and provide our mentees with educational trips, healthy food, and school supplies for the 2016-2017 school year! Please visit D.Y.M.O.N's website to learn the guidelines for the scholarship and detailed information on our mentoring program.

The couple connected through a mutual friend while in college at Middle Tennessee State University (7/17/2010), and their shared passion for entrepreneurship, mentoring, and having fun together with friends and family. After almost 5 years of dating, Ryan proposed to Brittany at her nonprofit's 3rd Annual Beauty and Brains Fashion Show (scholarship fundraiser) in front of the entire audienece! How sweet and BRAVE! :) She had to say yes, not to save him from embarrasement, but beacuse SHE HAD BEEN DREAMING OF THE DAY THAT HE WOULD GET ON ONE KNEE!!!
