Founded in 2009, The Edgar Sanchez Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that is hoping to help battle the fight against cancer. Our organization was developed in the memory of Edgar Sanchez, an enthusiastic young man whose life was cut short due to a brain tumor in 2003.
Founders, Jessi Sanchez and Othon Gomez, have dedicated their spare time to create an organization where everyone can help make a difference. Jessi is the late brother of Edgar and Othon was a close friend. In order to create a successful organization, it was their idea to create fundraising events in which the participants would be able to enjoy themselves as well as contribute to a great cause. What better way to raise funds than through an annual soccer tournament; the sport of choice for Edgar Sanchez.
With the help of Jane Goldsteyn and other friends, The Edgar Sanchez Foundation has been slowly increasing its number of participants each year. Our reach has extended beyond the North Shore and has gotten the attention of residents across the city of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Our goal is to create a major organization that will help make a difference and make every donation count. With your help, we can make this possible.
