Nassau, Bahamas - "Darling Family Day," a one-day FUNdraiser for the Devard Darlin As One Foundation with activities for the whole family including a flag-football tournament will take place on Saturday, July 16th, 10am-4pm. $250 per team;

A steak-out, 12noon-4pm, $10 and a party boat cruise, 9pm, $15, Potters Cay Dock in Nassau.

The As One Foundation was established with a vision is to support and enhance youth development by providing youth-centered activities and opportunities to develop character, values, sportsmanship, responsibility and positive relationships through a foundation that is supported and valued both nationally and internationally.

The As One Foundation and the The Devard & Devaughn Darling Football Camps (DDDFC) were started by Bahamian Native and NFL Wide-Receiver, Devard Darling, in memory of his late identical-twin brother, Devaughn Darling who died during spring football practice at Florida State University in 2001. The Darling brothers grew up loving American football and dreamed of playing collegiately and professionally. The fulfillment of their shared dream began after moving to the Houston, Texas area as 12 year-olds. They would excel academically and athletically as products of the Fort Bend Independent School District.  Devard's determination to not allow Devaughn's death be in vain is demonstrated through the work of As One, to expose young athletes to the American game in a safe environment, instructed by coaches and professionals - lending way to the opportunity for the young Bahamians to be considered more seriously for intercollegiate athletics scholarships and higher education.
