The 46th Annual Clearwater For Youth Celebrity Banquet took place on Saturday February 23, 2019 at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater, FL.
During this inspiring evening we recognize game changers in youth athletics through awards and scholarships. We also recognize outstanding members of our community whose values align with the CFY mission. Two notable mentions this year were the 2019 Champion For Youth winner, Hockey Hall of Famer, Dave Andreychuk and the 2019 Outstanding Achievement In Sports honoree, Phillies first baseman, Rhys Hoskins.

“About the Kids” Golf Classic at Old Memorial Golf Club
On May 16th 2016, Clearwater For Youth held the annual “About the Kids” Golf Classic at Old Memorial Golf Club. The event is presented by Dex Imaging, and along with golf, featured an awards presentation and “Big Auction.” The tremendously successful day helped raise funds to go toward local area youth programs and participants, insuring no child is turned away or program jeopardized due to financial concerns. The tournament has raised over $750,000 in the last ten years toward helping our youth “build character through sports.”
