On March 11th, 2013, our friend Marc Scialdo died in a helicopter crash while serving his country in Afghanistan. In honor of his memory and service we have created this fund to help empower children in Southwest Florida to pursue their dreams. Any monies raised will go to support the work of individuals, community programs and educational opportunities that help improve upon the life of a child, teen or young adult, with a preference towards the children of veterans or youth involved in service to their country or community. Our goal is to bring together Marc's passion for helping children with his love of his country and hometown. We hope that the legacy of Marc's life and his example of service to others will live on through this fund. Please join us in honor of Marc's memory and help us change the lives of others through the gift of opportunity.
