PR Log - Oct 25, 2012 - Buffalo, NY -- Buffalo Bills’ fullback Corey McIntyre is launching his new foundation and Team 38 mentoring program, at Lancaster Lanes (4913 Transit Road Depew, NY) November 9 from 7:30-10:30 pm. Fans will have the opportunity to bowl and meet Corey along with some of his teammates.
Team 38 was created to help young men learn valuable lessons outside of the classroom throughout their high school years while allowing them to earn scholarships dollars for each year they are involved in the program. Each year 38 male freshman students will be selected from (school) to participate in the Team 38 program. Every month, participating students will meet with Corey for a mentoring session that will have a different assignment and focus. Sessions will range from etiquette classes to job training sessions, resume writing workshops and more. Students will also be required to volunteer at on event per month with Corey to earn their scholarships dollars. At the end of four years, each student will have the chance to have earned $3800 of scholarship funds from the Corey McIntyre Foundation.
“I’m extremely excited to launch the Team 38 program and my foundation,” McIntyre said. “It has always been a goal of mine to give back to the Buffalo community and I can’t wait to get started. This is a dream come true for me and hopefully I can make a lot of dreams come true through Team 38.”
Tickets to attend the charity’s launch event are $38 and can be purchased at http://www.Team38.eventbrite.com. Attendees will enjoy three hours of unlimited bowling, shoes, pizza, beverages and giveaways from Corey and teammates. Space and tickets are very limited.
Team 38 was established to provide mentoring, uncover passions and lead young men to their respective purposes. The charity also changes the cycle of fatherlessness by providing role models for participating children. Partnering with local school districts, the juvenile court system, churches and other nonprofit organizations, Team 38 will match a caring adult volunteer with a young man to help him map out positive steps to achieve his dream. Through a network of community support, partnerships with local organizations, fundraising activities and training programs, Team 38 will reach, teach and equip young men with tools to positively affect their personal lives, family, community and the world.
