Domestic Violence Awareness

San Gabriel Valley YWCA Soccer Tournament & Fundraiser | October 5th 2019 | Goals Covina

From the desk of Gino Jones:

“Imagine a World without Violence.”

On Saturday October 5th 2019 we were honored to participate in the annual “San Gabriel Valley YWCA Domestic Violence Awareness Fundraiser & Soccer Tournament.”

This empowering event was co-sponsored by

Goals Soccer Centers - Covina @goalscovina

A brand new facility, very clean, organized, and easy to navigate.

The San Gabriel Valley YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism & empowering women. Their slogan,

“Use your power to EMPOWER!”

While talking with organizers I learned the YWCA has specific focus on eliminating racism, and empowering women. Two issues that are very important to me. The YWCA is actually separate from the YMCA. The YWCA is highly involved in community and with other ongoing programs and events throughout the region.

Special thanks to @marisadeanda one of the newest members of our #BlackCoffeeFamily

I am so truly thankful for the opportunity to have a public presence to help build awareness for this important event.

The engagement with event participants, victims, volunteers, and organizers was very motivating.

Seeing all public support had a profound affect on me.
