For the 8th year in a row, The Sak Brand Group announces its partnership with America Scores. America Scores uses the power of soccer and poetry to help urban youth learn valuable skills on and off the field. A cause that is an important one to Mark Talucci, co-founder, who at a very young age growing up overseas in places like Brazil, began his charitable work helping the underprivileged kids in his neighborhood.
In light of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative, childhood obesity has become a national priority. Jamie Oliver’s “Food Revolution” is also helping shine a spotlight on the epidemic. Scores coaches take it one step further teaching participants and their families about nutrition and healthy living while inspiring youth to lead healthy lifestyles, be engaged students, and to give back to their communities. Scores reaches over 6,000 children in underprivileged schools all over the country, including San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago and New York.
On July 11th, The Sak Brand Group and Bay Area Scores will team up to host The Bolinas World Cup Party at the Jefferson Airplane House in Bolinas, CA (outside of San Francisco). The Bay Area Scores organization has a goal of raising more than 100K from the event, live auction and online auction to add 200 kids to the program next year.
Attendees are invited to watch the finals of the World Cup Soccer Tournament and then enjoy an afternoon of live music, cocktails and food. This will be theplace to watch the World Cup Finals in the San Francisco Bay Area. The event will feature live music from Vinyl, a BBQ, cocktails, fresh oysters, big screen viewing areas, a live charity auction at a beach-front house overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
