Panorama Girls Wrestling Team in Los Angeles Receives Singlet Donation
By Joey Krebs, The PHANTOM STREET ARTIST 2013, Phantom Street Fighter Media
Panorama City, Los Angeles – In life there may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustices at our place of employment or community, but there must never be a time when we fail to reach out in support to make an individual RESPONSIBLE difference. On December 28, 2013, Leigh Jaynes of Chick Wrestler made a difference as she was contacted by a concerned Parent of a neighboring school who was impressed with the Panorama Girls high school team who had no gear whatsoever but won matches as true champions.
The Parent was impressed with the barrio’s team’s hard work ethic and its principle success at its matches that he felt the girl’s team should be given deserved recognition in being properly outfitted. Necessity is the mother of invention and a simple design provided by Brute and contributions given by REACHES distinguished the utilitarian purposes of its female athletes and their uniforms. The rest is history.
Thank you REACHES for your recent generous gift to the Panorama Girls Wrestling Club in Los Angeles. Your commitment to helping wrestling in our community is appreciated by those who help them and, most importantly, by those who benefit from our sport program and its services. Our mission is to empower young women with the knowledge and discipline it takes to be successful individuals, not only in their athletic endeavors but also in their journeys through life. Our success is equal to gratitude and we support greatness in thanking you for your kind community support.
Thanks to donors like R.E.A.C.H.E.S, the Panorama Girls Wrestling was provided with competitive singlets. Your donation allowed our program to save additional funding. The girls are eager to compete in their new gear unified as a team in being representative to their friends and family. The donation furthered our cause and supported our team’s initiative.
Again, thank you for all you do for our organization.
