     Message from Brian J. McDonough, Executive Director of Give Kids A Chance:

May 4th, 2021

Give Kids A Chance is currently in the process of reviewing scholarship applications from numerous qualified candidates for the 2021-22 school year and beyond. As we engage in this process, I am constantly reminded of all of you whose generosity has been instrumental in our charity's success.


As you know, we postponed our 2021 event due to the pandemic. Fortunately, it looks like we are turning the corner to the point where our leadership feels confident that we can safely host our 17th Annual event in early 2022. We are currently planning for our evening cocktail event to take place in an outdoor location on Sunday, January 9, 2022 and our annual golf outing to take place the following day on Monday, January 10, 2022. Our golf outing will once again be held at LaGorce Country Club in Miami Beach. In a short while, we will be sending a registration form and other information regarding the event.


We are hopeful that all of you who have participated in the past as a Sponsor or as a player will do so again this year. It should be a wonderful time.I look forward to connecting soon. Until then, please be well and, as always, thank you for your continued support of Give Kids A Chance.
