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