Supporting the Community

We are very excited to announce the inaugural Tamarac Fathers Club FINtastic 5K Run/Walk on May 13, 2017.

Tamarac Fathers Club

The Tamarac Fathers Club fosters and encourages a growing bond between students, their families, and the Tamarac Community. We support and enhance the educational experience for all students attending Tamarac Elementary School by raising money for non-funded or under-funded programs and activities within the school environment.

The Rose Brucia Educational Foundation’s goal is to reduce the number of child abductions in the U.S. by educating and empowering young minds with the knowledge necessary to avoid abduction. Utilizing puppets and a formalized educational curriculum, the foundation provides elementary-aged children with the Stranger Safety Awareness Program, free of charge.
