Hello Friends, South Florida Shockers Basketball Organization is a 501(c) 3 Non-Profit that is consistently seeking ways to raise funds for each of our three teams ranging from 8th to 10th grade students. The organization cannot achieve its mission and goals without the assistance of generous donations as we are a grass-root organization with minimal funding. We are seeking help from families, community leaders and businesses to assist with the expense of our student athletes’ participation in local and National tournaments. One of our most costly tournaments takes place in Orlando on Memorial Day Weekend. We are trying to raise at least $15,000 to fund travel expenses/transportation, boarding, registration/entrance fees, activities, and food/beverage costs for 30 teenaged boys. Additionally, being able to provide new uniforms for the upcoming season would be a plus as we have not been able to do so in years. Our parents are hard-working, supportive individuals who have dedicated much of their time, energy and financial resources to ensure not just the athletic advancement for our sons, but to help promote education, personal development, and mentorship which will help them to gain life skills. Seeing our boys grow socially, emotionally and athletically over the years has been a rewarding journey for us parents, and we do all that we can to keep the joyful looks on their faces as they continue to build their brotherhood. Unfortunately, the out of pocket expenses paid out by the families are quite taxing, yet we strive to continue to nurture our children and allow them to pursue their athletic passions. Our goal is to finalize our travel/lodging arrangements by February 3, 2020. Your financial contributions will take our organization very far this year, but most importantly, leave a lasting impression on our children’s lives.
