Revere, MA – Helge-Gansett announced it was primary sponsor for the 12th annual Revere Police Activities League (P.A.L.) Safe Summer Tip Off, a youth basketball tournament and community celebration aimed at inspiring unity and promoting safe activities for kids during the hot summer months.
The Revere P.A.L. Summer Youth Tip Off is supported through a donation by Helge-Gansett, a joint venture between real estate firms Helge Capital and Gansett Ventures. Revere P.A.L. is a nonprofit anti-drug, anti-violence organization launched 18 years ago with a mission to promote career awareness to at-risk youth while forging a bond between the community and Revere Police Department.
The event was held at Harry Della Russo Stadium in Revere and featured basketball tournaments, guest speakers, music, and a free barbecue. Revere P.A.L executive director, Kris Oldani; acting Revere Mayor Patrick Keefe; and State Representative Jessica Giannino all delivered remarks to the 300 student-athletes and community members in attendance.
“Revere is a wonderful city I have been proud to be part of for more than 30 years and this event exemplifies the spirit of this caring community,” said Helge Capital CEO, Oleg Uritsky. “Revere P.A.L provides opportunity for kids and inspires them to envision a bright future, career path, and instills in them a healthy respect for law enforcement and interest in a potential career in public safety. We are pleased to support this important mission and give back to this great community.”
“Building community begins with inspiring and engaging youth,” said Gansett Ventures president and CEO, Caleb Manchester. “Providing teens with mentorship, positive role models and fun experiences is so important to the health and future of Revere. We are proud to stand with Revere P.A.L and support its important work to strengthen our community and engage our youth in positive activities.”
