World Cup Win: Brazil Trip

Brazil kids viewing party 1

 

Chance of a lifetime! After winning a local essay contest sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company, Club members John Heath and Alberto Lemus, both Pacifica High School students, were selected to serve as official U.S. Flag Bearers during the 2014 FIFA World Cup representing the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and the United States. Club team director Cody Bowen, who wrote the winning essay on the teen’s work in the Triple Play program, went with them.
