Annual Appeal

It is our hope to expand our outreach program, so that we may better identify children with the greatest need. We would also like to include children with special needs, expand our facilities, and perhaps offer additional clinics in golf, lacrosse, volleyball, tennis, and baseball, as well as other healthy activities. You can help through our Annual Appeal.
