Nurturing the community to ensure a bright future begins with empowering our youth. That’s why, in 1971, a group of civic-minded business people who shared the belief that sports have a special way of unlocking a young person’s potential founded a philanthropic organization they called Sports Celebrities. Today, more than four decades later, that group is known as the Orange County Youth Sports Foundation, and it’s grown not only to become one of the most celebrated local charitable organizations of its kind, but one of the most effective in carrying out its passion: helping young athletes overcome obstacles to realize their dreams. Since its inception, OCYSF has given scholarships and grants to young Orange County athletes in addition to providing financial resources to other tax-exempt, sports-related organizations in need of assistance.
In addition to fostering the development of the area’s promising young athletes, OCYSF is renowned for its annual Sportsman of the Year banquet, which honors prominent sports figures who have inspired today’s youth, and who exhibit the unmistakable ability to act as leaders — both in their sport and in their community. Zachary Orthodontics has always supported youth sports in our community, and Dr. Zachary is a proud board member of OCYSF. To read more, go to https://ocysf.org
