As many of you may know, in 2004, I founded the ASAP Foundation. Since its inception, we have been able to send several students to private schools in both my adopted home state of Illinois and my home state of Massachusetts! The way we raise the necessary funds to provide financial assistance to these students is through our annual signature charity event .This impactful event results in the full sponsorship and mentorship of a student for four full years of education.
Our signature event garners ASAP national support from guests, who travel from all
over the United States to contribute to the cause that I started in 2004. The foundation
is very grateful and thrilled to raise enough funds to help give youth a chance of a
better education, and an opportunity for a higher quality life. Students like Anthony
Pierce with the LINK Unlimited Program. Anthony and I have bonded at cultural events
across the city, as we embark on the four-year journey we will share together during
Anthony's high school career. The outings assist with broadening Anthony's horizon, as
well as a chance for us to "link", and get to know each other better.
And then there is Noah Burke. As a student at St. Peter Marian in Massachusetts, Noah
continues to excel! With great grades, a promising football career and 7th in the state
of Massachusetts for the 300 meter run, he continues to work hard so he can produce
better results academically and athletically.
Through mentorship and devotion of this nature, ASAP is able to plant seeds of hope for
many children and watch them come into fruition. Through the continuous assistance
of the foundation's supporters and friends, Anthony and Noah now have additional
assistance to learn, grow and pursue their dreams.
The Fourth Annual Signature Charity Event took place on May 16 th 2012 at Lucky Strike Lanes and at our exciting bowling extravaganza we were able to raise over $12,000 strictly for student scholarships. This is a huge accomplishment for the foundation and it could not have been done without the caring heart of supporters like you. We thank you for your continued support and generous donations to the ASAP Foundation. Your
commitment and generosity enable us to continue our work in the community and change the lives of many deserving students.
