Second Annual Prep School Fair - Thursday, December 17 - 3PM - 7PM

This coming Thursday, December 17th from 3:00PM - 7:00PM, talented junior high school and high school students from The Bronx as well as the rest of the city will have an opportunity to meet with representatives of some of the Northeast Region's top prep schools at the 2nd Annual Prep School Fair thanks to Teamwork Foundation, Inc, a non-profit organization which runs the New York Gauchos which is touted as America's most successful AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) after school basketball program.

Since 1967, this great institution has provided hundreds of kids in the South Bronx with opportunities that otherwise would not be available to them due to the dearth of programs offered to inner city children.  The Prep School fair which is being promoted by Rocky Burcano, Vice-President of the New York Gauchos and Andrea Kretchmer who is on the Board of the organization is a wonderful opportunity that should not be missed so bring your junior high and high school children and show these great prep schools what a talented bunch of students The Bronx has!

A big Melrose THANK YOU goes to Rocky Burcano, Andrea Kretchmer as well as everyone at Teamwork Foundation, Inc and the New York Gauchos for believing in our underserved youth and providing them with the necessary tools to forge a better future for themselves!
