Armando "Army" Aiello Scholarship 2021

BGC Dovercourt Club has established a strategic alliance with Vito Maida, President, Patient Capital Management Inc. to annually provide a $1,000 Math or Science scholarship over the next 10 years. The scholarship is named in honour of the late Armando “Army” Aiello, who like Vito, was a BGC Dovercourt Club member. Vito, as Army did, feels a sense of commitment for the support and sense of friendship staff and volunteers provided while he attended the  Club.
