Let’s push this over and give them extra for whatever they might need! Maybe we can add to this an amount to cover buses and tickets to the Naples doubleheader?
TACOLCY Lacrosse Team Liberty City – Fundraiser
Seba Medina Schnur is organizing this fundraiser.
Hi, my name is Sebastian Medina Schnur and I am a sophomore at Gulliver Prep High School. Over the winter break my mom took me with her to a special event at the Belafonte TACOLCY Center in Liberty City. It was an event in partnership with The Miami Foundation and the Miami Heat where we got to pass out gifts, dance and play basketball with the kids in the program – even Burnie made an appearance! It was at the event that I realized how incredible the TACOLCY Center and the entire team there are. I also realized that I want to help and become more involved. The Belafonte TACOLCY Center (an acronym for “The Advisory Committee of Liberty City Youth”) is a nonprofit youth organization located in Liberty City, Miami that focuses on providing a safe and enriching environment where children and families are equipped to explore life’s options, make positive choices, and strengthen themselves and their community.
As I spoke to several people at TACOLCY that day, I was approached by a wonderful woman named Karen who has been involved with helping and supporting TACOLCY efforts for years. She asked me if I played sports and we got into a conversation about my love for lacrosse. She mentioned to me that TACOLCY had recently launched their youth boys’ lacrosse program and how much the boys were loving the sport. As a varsity lacrosse player at my high school, this made me so happy to hear. However, she also mentioned that they can really use help with getting new equipment and with connecting with other lacrosse teams and players across Miami. At this point, the idea popped into my mind to come up with a way to not only raise funds for new equipment for the team, but to also coordinate workshops and training sessions between the TACOLCY team and the team that I am on at Gulliver Prep; so here I am putting my thoughts into action and asking for you to help me help these incredible young boys! Any little bit helps.
All proceeds will be used for new equipment for the TACOLCY lacrosse team and any funds left over will be donated directly to the team.
