2017 SUPPORTED CHARITIES
The San Diego Enforcers are proud to partner with United Cerebral Palsy of San Diego for an unprecedented sixth season! United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) educates, advocates and provides support services to ensure a life without limits for people with a spectrum of disabilities. United Cerebral Palsy and its nearly 100 affiliates have a mission to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with a spectrum of disabilities by providing services and support to more than 176,000 children and adults every day one person at a time, one family at a time. For more than 60 years, UCP has worked to ensure the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in every facet of society.
Bella’s House of Hope address a critical need in our community, a need that typically falls between the cracks on the spectrum of social service programs. Moms with children with special needs often cannot get direct aid or support. Many outlets for support are targeted towards the needs of the child, which does not address housing, therapy, and support for moms. A single mom faces many uphill battles, juggling time and scarce resources while trying to provide love and support for their child. Mix in the overwhelming specter of a child with long term special needs, and you have a population in dire need of our community’s support.
Honor Flight San Diego (HFSD) is a non-profit branch of the nationwide Honor Flight Network which consists of over 130 independent “hubs” across America. HFSD escorts veterans to Washington D.C. to see their memorials using monies donated by individuals, foundations, associations, business owners and corporations who wish to recognize their contributions and thank them for their service and sacrifice to the United States and its citizens. Top priority for our trips is given to the most senior veterans, currently World War II survivors, and to veterans who are terminally ill.

The Joseph Pritchard Foundation was established by the family and close friends of Joseph Pritchard, a 2001 graduate of Lindenhurst Senior High School, Lindenhurst resident, and New York City Police Officer who was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident on March 25, 2013. The Memorial Fund serves to honor Joey's memory by giving back to the local community that he loved so much.
The Memorial Fund has two purposes. The first is to endow and award annual college scholarships to Lindenhurst High School senior student athletes that best personify the athletic, academic, and leadership qualities that Joey exhibited throughout his high school career. The second is a Financial Grant offered to create and/or financially participate in projects designed to improve the quality of life for youth sport organizations in the Lindenhurst community.
A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our supporters throughout San Diego County. Our families, friends, sponsors and fans have been tremendously generous of their time, money and consideration. Without all of you we wouldn’t be able to promote this organization and continue to grow stronger each year.
