Global Not Local hosted its first For The Culture Community Day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 19, at Zanders Park.
Global Not Local is a brand manifesting success and representing positivity for its Winter Garden community. The organization’s mission is to inspire the youth globally to dream big without limitations and to look beyond their environment by motivating them to continuously reflect on elevation.
Wendell Coates Jr., the group’s organizer, hosts several events throughout the year to encourage the neighborhood kids to look outside the four walls of the neighborhood community.
The day’s main event included some of the city’s favorite Amateur Athletic Union teams engaging in multiple officiated basketball tournaments.
The event also featured food and drinks from vendors, guest speakers, music and games, and more.
