ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- When Will and Tatiana Dyer found paradise and arrived in Florida in 2008, they already had a history of philanthropy and community caring from their home in Ohio.
As the owners of Dyer Chevrolet, Mazda, Subaru in Vero Beach and passionate about wanting to continue a tradition of community giving and supporting those who make the area a better place to live, they created a program called the Dyer Difference.
Each month, a worthy nonprofit organization was acknowledged and celebrated for its community service, spirit, and compassion and was awarded a $3,000 check to help continue improving and assisting the community.
Fast forward to 2014, and the caring staff at Dyer Automotive Group is bringing the Dyer Difference to St. Lucie County. With the purchase of the former Bill Shultz Chevrolet on U.S.1 in Fort Pierce just north of Midway Road, nominations are now being accepted for the Dyer Difference Award in St. Lucie County.
Once a month, members of the Dyer Automotive Group team will meet to select one nonprofit organization to celebrate and award with a $3,000 check.
Organizations nominated must meet the criteria and show current 501c3 status and must be located in St. Lucie County, but the nomination form is simple, user-friendly, and easy to complete for organizations of any size.
Nominations are good for a six month period, and an organization can be recognized with the Dyer Difference Award once per calendar year.
The deadline for the next award is Feb. 28. A nomination might help continue the important work nonprofits are doing and help continue the legacy of love created by the Dyer family with the Dyer Difference Award.
