The WFLSF was formed by a group of childhood friends who wanted to give back to the community they love, work, play and grew up in. 

The mission was simple for the group,"generate scholarships for students in the Franklin Township community that exhibit excellence in the areas of academics, athletics, arts, community service, social consciousness, and philanthropy."

WFSLF was founded by Daryn & Adrian Plummer, Nick & Rebekah Solomon, and Dashaun and Tierra Gourdine, and they all believe "once a Warrior always a Warrior." 

The group is calling on all members of the community to participate in grassroots initiatives the group will be organizing and to start some of their own.

"Warriors can organize their own fundraisers to benefit the scholarship fund (e.g Clothing drive, Charity sporting event) donate their goods or services as in-kind donations, or be a sponsor for, or purchase tickets to our 1st Annual Gala on November 24th at the Imperia on Easton Avenue," Co-founder Adrian Plummer said. 

Everyone is welcome to eat, drink, dance, and network together on November 24, at the 1st Annual Warrior for Life Scholarship Gala. There will also be a silent auction!

Tickets to the event are limited and can be purchased by clicking here,

The community can also show their support by purchasing Warrior Gear or donating at www.youcaring.com/wflsf

At the time of this article being written WFLSF has raised $2,865 towards its goal of raising $5,000 by November 1. The money will be used to pay for scholarships for at least four Franklin Township students, and presented at the gala, which will be held at the Imperia.
