Find A Dream Raises Money to Secure New Facility to Benefit Young Adults

(Myrtle Beach, SC) - Find A Dream, a non-profit organization that aids today's youth and young adults, is expanding into Myrtle Beach, SC area with the opportunity to secure an 8000 square foot facility. To raise money, they are hosting a telethon airing throughout the movie "Homeless for the Holidays", which can be seen on WWMB (South Carolina's ABC affiliate) Saturday, December 17, 1:00 pm and WPDE (South Carolina's ABC affiliate) Sunday, December 18 at 1:00pm.

WBTW CBS Channel 13 will also run the telethon from December 16th through the 19th to help raise money for the facility.

Find A Dream's mission is to attain a safe and supportive environment for youth and young adults of diverse social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds. While interacting with positive role models, our students will achieve a solid foundation in the pursuit of their dreams. Our program has already demonstrated that hands-on and personable coaching will enable our students to become future mentors and leaders in the community.

Joining them on their quest are former Heavyweight Champions Ray "Merciless" Mercer and Don "The Man of " Steele.

Mercer is an Olympic Gold Medalist Boxer (Seoul Korea in 1988) and WBO Heavyweight Champion. He also competes in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Kick Boxing. Throughout his career he's fought boxing legends like Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis. He currently owns the knockout of the year when he knocked out 5 time UFC Champion Tim Sylvia in 8-1/2 seconds.

Steele has one of the longest active pro boxing careers spanning 11 years. Steele has won three Heavyweight Titles in the United States Boxing Association, Southeastern Heavyweight title & the Carolina Boxing Association title.

Quantum Radio is currently running spots for Find A Dream's event featuring these two championship fighters. They too are helping Make A Dream raise money through 6 of their stations.

Currently Find a Dream has a gym in Waterloo, Iowa and is excited for the opportunity to come to the East coast and help the youth there.

"It's a privilege to work with the youth and young adults and help them shape and mould their careers, enforce qualities that they will take with them throughout their lives and hopefully make a positive impact on their community. It's a great responsibility" says Rod Riccardi and adds "we can't accomplish this goal without the expansion of new gyms throughout the US and that's why this is so important to us and Myrtle Beach."

In 2012 the "House of Blues" in Myrtle Beach will hold two benefit shows for this organization, as well as Resorts Casino - Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ - holding three events for Find A Dream.
