The Palm Beach Makos increased its' efforts on giving this Thanksgiving season. The Makos blessed 50 families with Turkey Baskets this year for its 3rd Annual Turkey Bowl. This is up from 20 Turkey Baskets from 2014 and 10 from the inagural 2013 season. Again, the Adopt-a-Family of the Palm Beaches were the recipient organization that will give away the Turkeys. Receiving the Baskets for the organization are: Rae Harris, Joe Morino, & Dolores Alaire.
The Turkey Baskets efforts were led by the Makos GM Ray Gordon. He has been a dominant force in leading the Makos in its community drives. The Turkey baskets were just one of the efforts conducted by the Makos this year. The Makos distributed Lunches on the 4th of July, visited the Childrens Hospital of Palm Beach, Palm Beach Nursing Homes, and Middle School Career Day events. The Palm Beach Makos Cheerleaders and Palm Beach Makos team coordinated the Thanksgiving food drive! The Makos would like to thank Publix, The Bobby Rescinitti Healing Hearts, and Joana Moore for their contributions of the turkeys. Go Team Makos!
