Be The Light Foundation Hosts Tournament
After the tragic loss of their son, JD and Ysha Arteaga both founded the Ari Arteaga Foundation which purpose is to “to spread the giving spirit of Ari Arteaga by inspiring others to help those in need.” And in his honor they have organized and begun an annual flag football tournament to raise money towards the foundation itself.
The day began with some rain, and although it wasn’t looking good, they decided to go ahead to keep on going with the event. The risk would bid well as the rain went away and the games were greeted with blue skies and lots of sun.
With endless planning and dedication, the Arteagas pulled off their event and began a tradition that was an instant success having over 1,000 people just on the first year.
