Goldie’s Youth Sports (GSY) ended its season with a taco party that was the perfect summer kickoff for local girls and their families. The magical community–building evening, June 5, has been missed the last few years.

Friends, teammates and families hung around the front lawn of St. Brendan School. The lawn was filled with picnickers while girls were running around, talking, giggling and playing games. Some 400 people filled their plates high with delicious tacos, rice and beans and drank specialty drinks including agua fresca, hibiscus tea and even beer for the adults.

Adults caught up with familiar faces, pals from the neighborhood and work associates. As Alex Dionne of Windsor Square commented about the event, “I loved it. It’s amazing that Goldie is able to bring all of these folks together and celebrate girls’ basketball.”

A big thank you to GSY and coach Goldberg for thinking up such a lovely event. It felt like the good old days.
