“Tackle Tomorrow, Today” Celebrity Golf Tournament
TACKLE TOMORROW, TODAY is an annual charity golf tournament that supports the mission of Tackle Tomorrow by funding the important literacy initiatives and community involvement campaigns that support hundreds of students and families in Dallas, Texas each year.
6th Annual Tackle Tomorrow Today Celebrity Golf Tournament
Hosted at the COWBOYS GOLF CLUB, the first and only NFL-themed golf club in the world, this year‘s event was headlined by Tackle Tomorrow co-founder and 5x NFL Super Bowl Champion Charles Haley, along with many current and former Cowboys players and coaches. This year‘s tournament registration, participation and sponsorship dollars also benefitted All Stars Helping Kids, a foundation created by fellow Super Bowl Champion & Hall of Famer, Ronnie Lott, to fight childhood poverty in California‘s Bay Area.

Holiday Food Drives
Many of the students we serve are from low-income homes and often lack funds to buy meals for holidays. Each year Tackle Tomorrow partners with a local grocery store to host a food drive at one of our partner schools to provide meals to faculty, staff, and students during Thanksgiving and Christmas.
End of the Year Luncheon
At the end of the year, Tackle Tomorrow sponsors an end-of-the-year luncheon to celebrate the graduating classes of our partner schools.
Tackle Summer Slide Program
Tackle Tomorrow along with various other organizations teamed up in a collaborative effort to reverse summer reading loss by providing children in Dallas County access to online curriculum, instruction from reading specialists, and learning incentives. This program served nearly 475 students who spent an average of 68.5 minutes each week using Istation Reading. Results of the Istation report showed that many students who participated in the program experienced no summer learning losses and showed significant academic improvement.
