Your support of PESC will allow us to continue to support community programming for underserved children. We fund summer camps, after school programming, college tuition, and other educational programming that impacts over 25,000 children annually through the charity. The Team 22 Mentoring program personally launched and supported by Pat and Emmitt has doubled in capacity over the past year. The students have had the opportunity to have experiences with both President George W. Bush and President Obama this year, to visit Washington DC and be spotlighted at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra as up and coming youth.
