The Millionaires organization would like to say "Thank You Sam Shields" for all your love and support this season.

The Sarasota Millionaires Football Organization were invited to participate in the first annual "Stomp The Violence" which was held at new The Robert L.Taylor Community Complex in Sarasota. The purpose of the event was to collectively send a message to the youths, teens, young adults and the community at large that there are more appropriate ways to resolve conflict, however, violence is not the solution. The Sarasota Millionaires were invited to participate in the events that were scheduled... spoken word, step teams from Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc, Omega Psi Phi Beta Beta Chapter, Tallahassee Kappa League, etc. "The event was a great success and we were honored to be invited to participate" said Bethsaida Williams co-owner. The Millionaires spoke briefly about the importance of stopping the violence being as they have lost two of their own football players to gun violence. The team went on stage and chanted their highly popular chant that has been with the team since their exsistence. The crowd also got involved with the chant as the team slowed it down for everyone to understand. "The words are powerful and meaningful in this chant (HIGHLY MOTIVATED... SUPER DEDICATED) and I know the crowd understood the message" said co-owner Calvin Williams.

"Stomp The Violence" was anticipated to be an outward display of unity and the commitment to the cause of deterring participatigng in gang activity, teen suicide and gun violence. By providing a nurturing environment that embraces those that are vulnerable to any of the afore-mentioned issues destroying our young folk. Greatness Beyond Measure, along with several other community partners, such as; The NAACP, The City of Sarasota, Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, The Kappa League of Tallahassee and Naomi Clayburn Foundation, aim to achieve this purpose collaboratively through an outreach strategy that more specifically targets young people within our respective community!
