Memorial Tribute Giving

Memorial / Tribute Giving

Losing someone we love is difficult, but finding a meaningful, impactful way to honor their memory doesn’t have to be. If the family wishes to direct donations to support our athletes, we can send you a personalized flyer to share at the memorial service in order to accept gifts in lieu of flowers.

What do you give the person who has everything? Celebrate birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and promotions with tribute gifts! It is a great way to make someone feel special when you make a tribute gift to sponsor one of our athletes. For more information, please contact Michele Latimer at 562.502.1130 or mlatimer@sosc.org.
