Dear Beachside Family and Friends,
We have now been living, working, and parenting under the specter of a global pandemic for approximately nine months, but nothing about this “new normal” is easy or routine. There are still many unknowns surrounding COVID-19, but it is clear that this virus affects everyone.
Perhaps most of all, we worry about our children and the impact of the global pandemic on their physical and mental health. Throughout the pandemic, Beachside has strived to provide a sense of normalcy for our Beachside family. We have provided an environment where players and their families can experience a structured, disciplined, and stable space where commitment, personal values, and principles remain the priority. And hopefully, we have given players and families a sense of hope that we will emerge from this “new normal” as a stronger community that is more focused than ever on providing its member families and players with a rewarding experience.
We are proud that in 2020, the Club maintained its commitment to financial assistance to families in need, having awarded approximately $90,000 in scholarships during this time. Moreover, the Club maintained this commitment during a time when its key fundraising activities, including the Annual Gala, were postponed. The Club’s ability to provide this ongoing assistance is dependent on the generous donations from you to Beachside’s “Annual Fund,” the Club’s primary source for Beachside’s scholarship program.
We anticipate that the need for financial assistance will grow in the coming months as we deal with what is hopefully the final phase of the global pandemic. 100% of our Board members and coaching staff have committed to making donations to the Annual Fund. A donation from you to the Annual Fund, at any level, is greatly appreciated. Your donation will ensure that Beachside will have the resources it requires to continue assisting families in need while providing a world-class experience.
Donate online or mail a check payable to Beachside Development Fund, 10 Prospect St., Unit 4, Norwalk, CT 06850. Your donation is tax-deductible as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and you will receive a donation letter as your receipt from the Club.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and continued support of Beachside. We are wishing you and your loved ones a safe and healthy holiday period.
