The Believe and Achieve Foundation Gala Photos with NFL quarterback Matt Ryan

The Believe and Achieve Foundation hosted two incredible
events, the 4th Annual Believe and Achieve Charity Golf Event and a
Celebrity Gala. The Believe and Achieve foundation provides access to basic needs for
at-risk youth in local neighborhoods. The Believe and Achieve Foundation
was established to help our local children living in poverty
conditions.

This year, Believe and Achieve has
joined forces with NFL quarterback Matt Ryan. Matt was born and raised
in the suburbs of Philadelphia and is passionate about making a
difference in the lives of our youth. He has been actively giving back to
the community of Atlanta through the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
as well as through The Boys and Girls Clubs of Atlanta and is excited
about helping out in his hometown. Matt and his family have pledged
their time and support for our upcoming fundraising campaigns.
