During the past two years, we have donated $3000 to Roy Pittman’s Peninsula Wrestling Club for shoes for kids, $3000 to the La Grande, Oregon, High School Wrestling Program for travel expenses, two $1000 scholarships to the recipients of the TSW Memorial Trophy, covered $700 in pay-to-play fees for two wrestlers, and helped over half a dozen middle school youth with travel expenses of $200-$300 each for out-of-state meets and tournaments. We are looking forward to dispersing almost $15000 this year for athletic participation fees and wrestling shoes for Tyrone’s wrestlers. Last May, we had a very successful golf tournament, raising over $6500, and are looking forward to hosting this event again plus scheduling a shooting clays competition the summer of 2018. A second American Red Cross non-fundraising blood drive, In Honor of Tyrone S. Woods, is scheduled for January, 2018.
In October, 2017, we were selected to be a recipient of the KPTV Fox 12 “Be the Change” award that is sponsored by Les Schwab Tires. To be recognized for our charitable efforts to help youth wrestlers by such a prominent and well-respected business in the Pacific Northwest is truly an honor. Thank you, Les Schwab!
