Vice Admiral Jay Donnelly, Commander Submarine Forces, and his wife Mimi, OSF President, arc both scheduled to play.
Dolphin Scholarship Foundation began in 1961 with one grant of$350, and has grown over the past 46 years to become one of the largest scholarship programs in the military community. The scholarship is available to children of members or former members of the U.S. Navy who served in, or in direct support of, the Submarine Force. This fall, DSF will award 137 undergraduate scholarships of$3,250 each, for an annual total of$445,250.
