Shoutout to our LGO Supporters of the Month of April, sisters Amelia and Adinah Delegenia. They are both currently participating in the LGO Teen Leadership Program and they were kind enough to lend their talents to singing The National Anthem at a recent LGO fundraising event Battle of the Badges. On receiving the honor the girls had this to say, "We had a great experience at the event! We’re honored to have had the chance to perform for such remarkable people and learn a little while we were at it!" Thank you to the girls for supporting LGO!
Annual Battle of the Badges fundraising basketball game in Berkeley
Life Goes On Foundation was humbled to be the fundraising partner for the annual Battle of the Badges 2019 basketball game in Berkeley between the Berkeley Police Department and the Berkeley Firefighters Department. The game was thrilling and a lot of fun! LGO was able to meet their goal of raising $2,500 towards the foundation. We look forward to attending the Battle of the Badges again next year! The following is a quote from firefighter Levon Thaxton II, "It was an honor to support the Life Goes On foundation today, Art is doing great things in the community and touching many lives. Thanks for letting us be apart of something so great." Thank you to everyone for supporting this great cause!

LGO Teen Leadership Program goes to the Oakland A's game!
We took the students of our LGO Teen Leadership Program to see our Oakland Athletics take on the Texas Rangers and everyone had a blast! For some of the students it was their first time going to a baseball game. Always a good time visiting the Coliseum this time of year.
