Come out to the Houston Whiskey Festival on March 15, 2014 from 6-10pm and enjoy whiskey seminars, a cigar lounge, and live bands.
Proceeds from the festival benefit the Santana Dotson Foundation.
The Santana Dotson Foundation was established in 1995 to provide financial and emotional support for challenged, yet deserving high school students so they may realize their dreams of a college education. Founder, Santana Dotson, is a defensive lineman for the Washington Redskins.
The Foundation is able to meet its goals with the assistance of All Sports Community Service, Inc., a non-profit organization founded by former Chicago Bear players, Tyrone Keys and Jerry Ulm, Sr., to serve at risk youth. It is based in Tampa Florida, where Santana spent his first four years in the NFL as a starting defensive lineman for the Buccaneers.
The Santana Dotson Foundation has awarded seven $1,000.00 scholarships per student, per year since its inception.
The Foundation has also assisted students via the All Sports Community Service, Inc. with:
- Academic tutoring
- SAT and ACT testing preparation
- Employment opportunities – for students who want to support their families
- Community service- participants are required to perform a minimum of 10 hours of community service per semester
- College retention program- college students are able to seek help from the All Sports staff by using their toll free telephone number
