Chicago, IL, June 13, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- 1000 Watts Sports, a Chicago-based sports programming company for kids, has given 27 Chicago-area students scholarships to attend its sports camp this summer. Children who may not have had the opportunity to attend summer camp are now going to be part of this sports camp that is all about friendships and fun.
1000 Watts Sports owner Brandon Watts said, “I always dreamed of having a children’s sports programming business that was able to reach into the inner city of Chicago and welcome children of all different socio-economic backgrounds.” Watts added, “It was beautiful to see parents from all different backgrounds at our orientation, and they were all there for the same reason – that embodies what the United States is all about.” Watts knows what it’s like to be a minority, and he feels like he’s in a position to impact lives and actually make a difference.
While 1000 Watts Sports is only a year old, it still has made philanthropy and full inclusion a major priority. Through the support of local businesses and families, money was raised to send deserving kids to camp this summer. The next goal is to raise money for scholarships for other 1000 Watts Sports programs in addition to camp. In addition to its sports camp, 1000 Watts also offers a football program, basketball program, birthday parties and days off activities.
Amy Kite, Director of Communications at 1000 Watts Sports, said, “Many businesses have to wait years until they can consider giving back to the community, but Brandon Watts decided the time was now.” Kite added, “It’s great to be a part of a team that makes its dreams a reality.”
