We hope everyone is enjoying a great football season.
We have some information to share with you, our football community, about out beloved Board President, Mark Grommesch. Mark was recently diagnosed with cancer. Please visit this link to Mark's CaringBridge to learn more and follow the journey.
SYFA will be joining others to support Mark and his family. Please stay tuned to our web site, email blasts, Facebook page and twitter feed where we will share with our members events and other opportunities to help the Grommesch family.
The first event is Monday October 29, 2018 at Pablo’s. Plan to have dinner with your family and friends at Pablo’s that evening. The restaurant has generously offered to donate 20% of the sales to help support The Grommesch family as they battle Mark’s cancer.
See the below brochure for more details.
Thank you all in advance for your concern, prayers and support of Mark and his family during these challenging times. And thank you for helping support a member of our SYFA community!
