BENEFITING: Osborne Association, Inc.
On Saturday, May 19, Osborne’s Children, Youth, and Family Services and Youth Action Council (YAC) will host its first annual YAC Basketball Tournament. Our Youth Action Council is a group of 15 – 18 year olds whose mission is to raise awareness about the effect of parental incarceration on children and create positive changes in the criminal justice system in order to improve the lives of the many children affected by their parent’s criminal justice involvement.
The event will take place from 11am-3pm at the St. Francis College Gym, 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, 11201. When you make a donation, you will be entered in a raffle to win TWO ROUND TRIP JET BLUE TICKETS, among other prizes. Winners will be announced during the tournament.
The competing teams will be made up of Osborne family, friends, and staff. The "home team" will be the YAC Team, comprised of our youth leaders. Along with the friendly competition, there will be free food, music, games, and more to enjoy throughout the event.
We'll gather to cheer on the YAC team, and to honor the bravery and resilience of the 2.7 million children with incarcerated parents in the United States. Incarceration does not stop a child’s love, and we stand—and cheer—to support and protect the rights of all children.
Join us for a day of competition, community, food, and fun on May 19. Read the Children of Incarcerated Parents Bill of Rights and donate now to support these dynamic youth and their vital mission.
