Special Congratulations to our
2019 Rainbow Award Recipient,
The Rainbow Award was created by our organization in 2014 after we lost one of our long-time supporters and friends, Rainbow (Sayeed Abdul-Muntaqim). Rainbow was a guest at our annual golf tournament every year, and always brought a smile to our faces and our guests when he was present in the room. Rainbow dedicated his life to making children happy by performing with the comedy basketball team, The Court Jesters. At our 2013 tournament, which was two weeks prior to when Rainbow passed away, he stood up at the end of our tournament, and addressed the room of 200 people. He ultimately said good bye to all of us and asked everyone in that room to keep his spirit alive by continuing his passion of "making children happy." After we lost Rainbow, we dedicated this inaugural award to be presented each year at our golf tournament to a person who we believe is helping us in our mission and goal and giving the extra effort that isn't asked of that person, but that they take upon themselves to perform in hopes to "making children happy."
Ed is a much deserving recipient of this award as he's been involved with Pitching in for Kids since our inception in 2004. Ed has continued to lead by example and go above and beyond with his efforts through Jet-Mail and personally these past 15 years. Whether it's his involvement on our planning boards, sponsoring our events, donating auction items, running half marathons, introducing us to new supporters, printing needs, and so much more....Ed has stepped up, and been a champion for Pitching in for Kids. It's with Ed's support, kindness, generosity and friendship that we know he truly carries out Rainbow's message by "making children happy."
