Intrepid Investments, LLC makes Substantial Donation
to Beacon Schools of the Virgin Islands in time of great need

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands – September 24 2009 – Intrepid Investments, LLC, a merchant bank headquartered in the United States Virgin Islands, made a generous donation of $50,000 for the second year in a row to The Beacon Schools of the Virgin Islands, Inc.

"We are very proud to continue to sponsor and participate in the Beacon Schools Annual Celebrity Golf Classic again this year," said Niuniu Ji, founder of Intrepid Investments, LLC. "In these economically challenging times, it is even more important that the companies that can contribute step up and do so. We are pleased to take a leadership role in this effort and ask other VI companies to contribute their support at whatever level they can."  Intrepid's 2008 donation made possible the first high school level Beacon School program and this year's donation ensures its continuation through the 2009-2010 school year.  

The annual tournament is a fundraiser for the after-school Beacon Schools Program, whose mission is to establish, administer and promote safe havens that offer tailor made school community learning center opportunities. Programs respond to the needs and requests of the host school and community, meeting educational, economic and social needs of the middle, low and very low income families residing in the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Michael Brooks, a member of the Board of Directors and Golf Committee Chairman said, "This is an excellent opportunity for the Virgin Islands to receive the recognition it deserves as not only a golfer's destination in America 's Paradise, but it brings more support to the Beacon Schools Program as well."

Founded in 1996, the Beacon Schools program is administered by the Beacon Schools of the Virgin Islands, Inc. and currently operates 7 sites in St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix.  After only thirteen years in existence, the program has already received national recognition for its community-driven after school learning centers, and is set to open new programs and schools to improve lives.
