Through my Family Foundation, I have had the opportunity to partner with and support some exceptional organizations over the years. From local community clubs to national education initiatives, it has been an honor and a blessing to be able to give back to these organizations to support their efforts of bettering the community, helping those in need, and inspiring others.
With great pleasure, I would like to acknowledge some of the organizations that I partnered with and supported this past year.
