The Larry Dominick Foundation has made a donation of $25,000 to the Clyde Park District, to be used to support sports and recreation programs for youth in Cicero and neighboring communities. “We are so proud of the youth programs that we have built up over the years,” said Anthony Martinucci, executive director of the Clyde Park District.

“This donation helps to ensure that we can continue to provide top-quality, affordable programs to boys and girls in Cicero.” President Dominick said he was proud of the work that the Clyde Park District has done to provide a wide range of quality programs and services to residents in Clyde Park, especially to Cicero’s youth, families and seniors. “Keeping our children involved in sports and after-school-programing is an important step in helping them to strengthen their character and keep them focused on achieving their career goals,” Dominick said. “We are proud of the many quality programs children and families will find at Cicero’s Parks. The services that Clyde Park District provides to the community is making a difference.”

Dominick and members of the Cicero Town board presented the check to the Clyde Park District on Thursday Sept. 15. The District’s sports and recreation programs provide fun, safe, healthy activities for thousands of children each year. This fall, for example, 1,200 boys and girls are participating in the Park District’s fall soccer program.
