GOLF WITH A PURPOSE
To help build awareness around drowning and at the same time raise funds towards the cause, the Law Office of Israel Fermin in partnership with Loan Officer Sebastian Cordoba from Seacoast Mortgage, are dedicating their July Golf Fundraiser to The Manny 267 Foundation.
About the Manny 267 Foundation:
On Friday, June 4th, 2021, Officer Enmanuel ‘Manny’ Familia responded to a 911 call for a drowning of 14-year-old boy, Troy Love, in Green Hill Pond in Worcester, Massachusetts. Unfortunately, Officer Familia and Troy Love did not make it out of the water alive.
The Manny 267 Foundation was created by the Familia Family to spread awareness around the hazards of drowning and provide water safety training to both civil servants and civilians. The mission of the Manny 267 Foundation is to raise donations to provide Manny Tubes to police departments and water safety training and swimming lessons for children to prevent drowning.
