The outpouring of heartfelt emails received from youth soccer clubs, players and parents from across South Carolina and neighboring states expressing sympathy for The Dent Family and encouragement for the families of Jennings and Mellichamp has been nothing short of incredible! To each of you out there, the vast majority of whom our three special families will never meet, our Club thanks you so very, very much. Indeed, "the beautiful game" of youth soccer will always be kept alive through the beautiful hearts of passionate people like you who support players and families in times like this and encourage children to participate to the best of their abilities.
In honor of Ashley, The Ashley Nicole Dent Memorial Scholarship Fund has now been formally established. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made at any Bank of America branch located in any state.
