Boys & Girls Club of Venice
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 provide the overhead for the young athletes who wished to compete in this unique sport. The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Venice is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Russell and David Brown were awarded a Mayor’s Commendation from the City of Los Angeles for creating and then organizing this program.
