The Angel’s Foundation encourages its donors, mostly local business people, to remember the fun they had playing sports throughout their own childhood.

The SWAT teams also raise funds for the Angel’s Foundation through a variety of means, including selling hot dogs at their events. All profits go directly to the Foundation.
