The Frank Matrise Jr. & Pat Quilling Sports Fund assists youth from low-income families interested in playing tackle football, indoor soccer, summer baseball/softball, or winter basketball at the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha.
The foundation will provide scholarships for Kenosha’s youth to participate in BGCK sports at no cost and provide support for new equipment as needed. Parents of local athletes can apply for scholarships quarterly.
