Greetings from Zeb’s Foundation. We hope this message finds you safe, healthy, and in good spirits.
The Zeb’s Foundation Board and Gala committee have spent the last week praying, discussing, and seeking counsel on how best to respond to the current critical situation. As a globally focused mission, we are particularly sensitive to the fact that this is a global crisis. We have come to the decision to postpone the 3rd Annual ZebStrong Memorial Gala from April 23rd, 2020 to the Columbus Day weekend in October.
Our intent is to create a weekend focused on Zeb’s dream. When asked what the mandates on his life were, Zeb responded that he wanted to tell his story, help people, and to give soccer balls away to kids in other nations. When asked why, Zeb stated, “Well I want to help others and I love soccer and I want to share what I love with others”. The new plan is to host the gala on Thursday October 8th, to organize a community outreach in Fort Worth focused on giving soccer balls to kids in need on Saturday October 10th, and to hold our 5th Annual ZebStrong Memorial Golf Tournament on its normal Columbus Day date landing this year on Monday, October 12th.
Zeb’s Foundation is honored and truly blessed for the support that you all have provided over the years. We specifically want to thank this year’s Gala Impact Sponsors, Central Market and Old Pro Roofing. We also want to thank the following sponsors who have already purchased their tables: World Cup Sponsors, Brandon & Kristin McNiel—Kristin McNiel Realtor; Premier Sponsors, Ryan & Shana Zamarron, Chris & Kristin Campbell, Sean & Sunnye Myles, Jeff & Valerie Montgomery, Gary & Cheryl Lankford—Lankford Media, Troy & Leanna Brewer—Spark WorldWide, and Kevin & Whitney Harris—KW Homes.
Registration is still open and the need is great.
As you can imagine, Zeb’s Foundation depends on these two events to provide soccer balls and the ongoing support that we provide both locally and abroad. During these uncertain times, we ask that you would consider partnering with us on a monthly basis with a commitment of one year. We are suggesting 3 levels of partnership and if you will partner with us, we will do the following:
- $25 Monthly Donation [includes a ZebStrong car decal]
- $50 Monthly Donation [includes a ZebStrong car decal and our premium golf cap]
- $100 Monthly Donation [includes a ZebStrong car decal, our premium golf cap, one seat at the 3rd Annual ZebStrong Gala, and one admission to the 5th Annual ZebStrong Golf Tournament]
You are especially invited to join us on Saturday October 10th to invest in our community.
