CARROLLWOOD – The Carrollwood Community Bar Association recently presented a $10,000 check to Tyrone Keys, founder of All Sports Community Service Foundation. The two organizations have benefited from a 12-year partnership. The CCBA helps raise funds through an annual golf tournament. That money is used to give grants to teachers and youth coaches and to help support programs that guide students towards achieving higher education goals through compassion and character.
This year, ASCS and CCBA alum Gilbert Perez returned to give grants in honor of his former teacher and youth coach. The winner of the CCBA 2013 Marcia Inman Memorial Teachers Award was given to Lucy Menendez, a kindergarten teacher at Alexander Elementary School. The winner of the Jose Marrero Memorial Coaches Award was given to Coach Samuel J. Brown, the golf coach at Franklin Middle Magnet School.
With the additional funds, ASCS also will be able to continue to provide sports and education camps for kids who would not otherwise be able to participate. Other activities that will benefit are a five-day college bus tour with high school student athletes, the Urban Teaching Academy, and the Junior Bucs.
