We would like to take this time to thank everyone on the 2013-14 DC Canes Board, who were incredible in creating program to unite all Miami alums, parents and fans in the DC area.  When you see them at a future event, please thank them for their service.  They definitely deserve the kudos!


Nominations for Future DC Canes Awards

We would like to thank everyone who came out to the Annual Meeting & Banquet this past Sunday!  As we continue to grow the banquet and make it an annual event, we will be adding awards to recognize members of the DC Canes community.  But, we need your help to identify members doing great things!  Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their work for the University of Miami, for DC Canes or for the DC community?  Tell us!  Send an email to nominations@dccanes.com and let us know who you wish to nominate for an award and a blurb of why they deserve recognition.


Love What We Do? Become a Dues-Paying Member!

As we approach the summer, we would love to have all DC Canes consider paying dues!  Dues helps DC Canes operate throughout the year to bring events to the DC area.  Dues are $25 for individuals or $40 for couples.  In addition to our deal with AllCanes that will save you 10% on any online or in-store purchase, we will be bringing other member benefits to certain events that will allow you to save money.  To pay your dues or to make a donation to DC Canes, please follow the instructions on our website.


Scholarship Donations Accepted

We are always accepting donations for the Marty Pearl Memorial Book Scholarship.  The Scholarship fund provides financial assistance to matriculating Miami students from the DC area.   We are on pace to award the largest amount of scholarship money in our history, but to get to our goal, we need your help!  If you feel inclined to donate to our Scholarship, please follow the link on our website for donations.  Please make a note that the donation is for the Marty Pearl Memorial Book Scholarship.  We thank you all for your continued support!


Don’t forget to follow us via our website, Facebook and Twitter.  Have an idea for an event?  Questions?  Always feel free to email us at info@dccanes.com.
