ARGOS TEAM-UP WITH PINBALL TO HELP EMPOWER YOUTH

$2 From Every Argos Ticket Sold in June to be Donated to the Pinball Clemons Foundation

TORONTO -- For the entire month of June, the Toronto Argonauts will donate $2 from every ticket sold to the Pinball Clemons Foundation, the team announced today.

"As another school year comes to end, we are reminded that not all kids have the same opportunity when it comes to education," said Michael Copeland, President & CEO of the Toronto Argonauts. "And as we prepare to kickoff another season of Argos Football, we have an opportunity to help empower our youth, by empowering our fans to make a difference. Simply buy a ticket to an Argos game during the month of June and you are helping make a difference in a kid’s life."

The goal of the Pinball Clemons Foundation is to give a hand up not a hand out to the most disadvantaged youth in our communities.  The Foundation believes this is best accomplished through education.   

"Football is a tough game but life can be infinitely tougher,” said Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons.  “The funds collected will support kids’ right here in our local community.  Kids who lack responsible adult allies, youth who don’t have a permanent home and young people for whom the normal school stream is often not possible or practical.  The Pinball Clemons Foundation Ambassador School has achieved unprecedented academic success supporting the most underserved kids in Toronto.  This is, quite possibly, the best work we do.”

The Argos have also setup a mechanism for anyone who wants to donate the tickets they purchase to underprivileged youth in the Toronto community. To take advantage of this offer, please contact Melissa Robinson at mrobinson@argonauts.ca or 416-341-2787.
