Boys & Girls Club of Venice
The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Venice is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. With the support and leadership of the MaddocksBrown Foundation, the UCLA Competitive Sailing Team joined forces with the Boys & Girls Club of Venice to start a program to teach youths to sail competitively. Funding was provided to purchase a bus, small sailboats, gear, and to accommodate the overhead for the young athletes who wished to compete in this unique sport. Russell and David Brown were awarded the Mayor’s Commendation from the City of Los Angeles for creating and organizing this program.
