On May 2nd, the West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation will host the 17th Annual Wine Tasting & Charity Dinner at Lexus Santa Monica to raise money for our foundation and Team to Win. All proceeds will benefit the West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation (WCSMF).
The event – you can register by clicking on this link – includes wine tasting, a silent and live auction and a spectacular dinner provided by Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar.
The West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation (WCSMF) provides the medical care, Certified Athletic Trainers, and education to allow the student athlete to stay in the game.
The MISSION of WCSMF is to provide a positive effect on the lives of the youth it serves. Participation in interscholastic sports promotes teamwork and a healthy lifestyle, encourages cooperation and understanding, helps foster and build relationships, enhances equal opportunity and teaches valuable lessons and life skills needed to survive and succeed.
Through organized athletic participation, students learn how to set goals and meet challenges. These students are less likely to use drugs or join a gang and more likely to graduate from high school and pursue higher education.
Keith Feder, M.D. and Carol Frey, M.D. co-created the Team to Win program to provide sports medicine expertise and treatment to low income, at risk student athletes of Los Angeles, the first of it’s kind in Los Angeles. His participation in high school and collegiate athletics has given him first-hand knowledge of what can occur during sports participation.
His expertise in sports medicine is the reason professional athletes and sports organizations, such as USA Weightlifting, the DEW-NBC Action Tour, Cal State University Dominguez Hills, L.A.
