The William and Mary Football team recently raised over $4,000 for Bacon Street, a organization that provides services to young people and families affected by substance abuse and/or mental health issues, by executing a fundraising car wash throughout the Williamsburg community on Sunday, April 21st.

On Friday afternoon, April 26, the team’s senior captains (George Beerhalter, Jerome Couplin III and Matt Crisafi), presented Bacon Street’s Executive Director, Sandy Fagan, and Beverly Lancaster, the President of Board of Directors, with a check for $4,100, prior to its final team meeting of the spring semester.

“This kind of gesture is one I find typical of this program,“ stated Fagan.  “The quality of the young men who represent William and Mary on the football field cannot be overstated. The funds provided through their efforts will allow four chidren who otherwise would not be able to afford necessary services to receive six months of substance abuse treatment for both themselves and their family. “

Tribe senior center Matt Crisafi spoke on behalf of the players by stating “As a program we value our relationship with the Williamsburg community.  This service project was a great opportunity for our entire team to participate in a worthy cause.”

The Tribe will open its 2013 schedule on the road against West Virginia University on August 31st.

Organized in 1971 by concerned citizens, Bacon Street is a private, not-for-profit corporation governed by a Board of Directors representing the four jurisdictions it serves. The program is licensed and certified as an outpatient substance abuse center by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health; is a member agency of both United Way of Greater Williamsburg and United Way of the Virginia Peninsula. The program is also a charter member of The Virginia Association of Drug and Alcohol Programs.
