Goldenrod Companies was the court sponsor for the Play It Forward 3 vs. 3 Basketball Tournament on April 6, 2019. Along with this $5000 donation, Goldenrod Companies also sponsored a 3-man team comprised of local YMCA youth. This 3 vs. 3 tournament benefitted the 2019 Pipeline Sports and Peace Project.
The Pipeline Sports and Peace Project is the conduit for facilitating connections between donors and vulnerable communities in East Africa, based on the needs voiced by local leaders. They act as impact catalysts by providing funding, time and resources for projects that will deliver access to clean water, sanitation, education and healthcare in the most impoverished regions.
Proceeds from this event went towards building an asphalt concrete basketball court with new hoops and custom seating in Gulu, Uganda. In July of 2019, Jamie Nollette, the founder of Pipeline Worldwide, traveled to the Ocer Campion Jesuit College and saw the unveiling of their new sport court which Goldenrod helped fund. The pictures above show the children of Ocer Campion enjoying their new sport court which has the Goldenrod Companies logo painted onto the asphalt.
