Established to honor a son and brother, The Trey Curry Foundation will continue its mission of providing financial assistance for children in need by making a generous pledge to Kids Charity of Tampa Bay (KCTB). The $400,000 donation, which will be made over the next four years, grants the Foundation naming rights to one of the five houses at A Kid’s Place in Brandon.
“Trey loved kids; he loved being around them, showing them how to do things,” said Terry Curry, Trey’s mother and director of the Trey Curry Foundation. “Supporting A Kid’s Place seemed like a great fit, and it’s right in our backyard.”
A Kid’s Place is a 60-bed residential care facility that serves as a safe, stable and nurturing environment for abused, abandoned and neglected children who have been removed from their homes by the courts.
Children staying at A Kid’s Place reside in a home-like setting with live-in house parents, and siblings are housed in the same home to provide consistency for the family unit. The average age of children served by A Kid’s Place is 5, and the average length of stay is 65 days. The Trey Curry Foundation is the fifth naming sponsor among the five houses at A Kid’s Place.
The Trey Curry Foundation plans to raise money through special events, like fishing tournaments and crawfish boils. The Foundation’s “Vine to Wine” wine-tasting fundraiser, held on May 13, drew more than 400 people and raised more than $40,000.
Those looking to support the Trey Curry Foundation in its efforts to raise money for the pledge can donate online at www.kidacharitytb.org, under “Community Initiatives” and then under “A Kid’s Place.”
