Recently Mike McKenzie’s 34 Ways foundations joined up with Toys for Tots to present a 2 Day event in Lake Charles Louisiana to help raise awareness and funds to support the local youth in Southwest Louisiana, both of these foudations are known for helping a lot of children with everything from backpacks for school, to Christmas Give aways.
I had the pleasure of meeting and interacting with these great program directors (Toys for Tots “John Lamar”) and 34 Ways Foundation founder, former New Orleans Saints Cornerback Mike McKenzie.
Although it was hot and steamy, the round of golf with these NFL players was great, they did meet and greets, took the time to give words of encouragement to all of the young golfers, along with taking photos and signing autographs for everybody that was out there on the golf course.
I have to say that meeting these guys was a privilege, they knew it wouldn’t be long before a new CBA was in place and they would be back in pads working toward winning that next championship trophy, but today it was all about raising funds to help these children.
Most of the players present like Saints Robert Meachum, Randall Gay, to ago along with Antonio langham and Patriots Defensive linemen Marlon Favorite, are working out with their own personnel trainers, and are fit and ready to go.
Saints retired cornerback Mike McKenzie has done a wonderful job of helping out all of these organizations that support under privileged children, like this weeks Toys For Tots, who by themselves raise thousands of dollars each year for children’s needs all over the world.
This golf tournament, along with the Pork Cook-off and Motorcycle show, helped raise much needed funds for both of these organizations, but mostly it brought awareness to the public about how much help was really needed for our children in SWLA and the world.
I applaud orginizations like 34 ways foundation, and Toys For Tots, for their efforts in trying to bring a better life for many underprivileged children.
I would also like to thank Townsquare Media, for their coverage of all of these events, they were a driving force that made sure that everyone was aware of what was going on in Southwest louisiana, through the booming voice of Mike Soileau Program Director Cajun Radio 1470, KLCL AM and 1290 KJEF AM. God Bless You All.
