What started with a small conversation between Martin Gramatica and J.R. Martinez has expanded into a program to build houses for combat wounded veterans. As a result, Justin and Carol Lansford will have a home built in Tampa Bay.
For the third year, the Gramatica Family Foundation has brought the community together for a kickball tournament. Sponsors brought teams, food and drinks, and lots of energy for the event. An auction at the end for a boating vacation in the Virgin Islands brought in enough money to “pay it forward” toward building the next home.
Kickball works because most anyone can play. What is most important is how families and communities gathered to honor and support our veterans.
