Zcharia Memorial Volleyball Tournament 2023

The Zcharia Jose Memorial Foundation is devoted to commemorating the cherished memory of our dear Zcharia Jose and assisting in the fight against cancer. We are thrilled to announce our recent donation of $5200 to the American Cancer Society in May 2023. This contribution symbolizes our unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of those affected by cancer. The Zcharia Jose Memorial Volleyball Tournament 2023 was an outstanding success. We recently hosted a highly successful volleyball tournament that brought together participants who showcased their skills and shared a common passion for supporting the battle against cancer. We take immense pride in sharing that the tournament winners, the Moonshiners (Tinu Thomas and team), generously donated their prize money of $300, while the runners-up, the KC Avengers (Abdul Kurnool and team), also contributed their prize money of $200. The collective generosity of these teams further reinforces our dedication to the cause. This helped us donate an additional $500 to the American Cancer Society. We are deeply grateful for the tremendous support from the participating teams and all the individuals who backed this tournament. Our efforts not only serve as a source of encouragement for the participants but also highlight the significant impact we can achieve when we join forces in the fight against cancer. We extend our heartfelt appreciation for your unwavering dedication and the invaluable work you all do, which enables us to support the American Cancer Society and KCHope Lodge in aiding patients and raising awareness. It is an honor for us to contribute to this noble cause, and we eagerly anticipate continued support in the future.
