AmpliVox Donates Pinnacle Lectern to Amanda J. Buckley Foundation

The Amanda J. Buckley “Give a Smile to a Child” Foundation was created in 2008 to honor the life and memory of Amanda Buckley, an 18-year-old student and softball player who died a crime victim in 2007. The 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization continues Amanda’s lasting legacy as a humble and kind young woman and hard-working athlete by raising funds and other forms of assistance to help children and families overcome sudden tragedies and hardship beyond their control.

Since its inception, the Amanda J. Buckley Foundation has aided thousands of disadvantaged children and families by helping offset school expenses, sponsoring college scholarships and promoting youth athletics and sportsmanship. The organization has also lead in an effort to rehabilitate an old baseball field, which is now home to the Palm Beach Gardens Lady Gators high school softball team, and is aptly named the Amanda J. Buckley “Field of Dreams” Memorial Stadium.

Recognizing the importance of the work being done, we recently donated one of our Pinnacle Multimedia Lecterns to the foundation, which operates in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. As you can see in the pictures, the lectern has been used at various fundraisers and events, helping the organization extend their voice to volunteers and supporters.
According to AmpliVox account executive Dan Kreusch, “The foundation is a great cause. We are drawn to the way the Amanda J. Buckley Foundation combines philanthropy and community development. They are devoted to helping people in need, whether it is with basic essentials like school supplies or with extracurricular activities like playing sports. Their work goes a long way in realizing dreams and improving opportunity for young people.”
