Score for the Future, the Three Stars charity football league, will benefit the local March of Dimes chapter, an organization dedicated to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.
For the past six weeks, the employees of Three Stars have been participating in an intra-company flag football league in which each point scored generated a five dollar pledge from the company’s executives to a charity fund. The season’s championship game will be played Friday, March 20th at the Smith Center in Orlando. By the conclusion of the game, the company’s athletes will have raised in excess of $2000 for the March of Dimes.
The Three Stars event will serve as the launching point for the annual March for Babies event April 25th at Lily Park in Maitland. The company will be building baskets, for mothers of premature babies, that contain all of the essentials needed to care for newborn babies. The baskets being assembled by Three Stars will be donated during the march along with baskets from other organizations, groups, and individuals. During the game, employees will be personally donating additional items to the baskets.
The March of Dimes raises millions of dollars each year to support all-important research into preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects; to educate women on ways they can increase their chances of having a healthy baby; and push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children.
The championship game will be played Friday, March 20th at 2:30 p.m. at:
Dr. Smith Neighborhood Center
1722 Bruton Blvd.
Orlando, FL 32885
