Mackenzie Forrest Legacy Fund to benefit Gold Crown Enrichment programs
Mackenzie Forrest, a Lakewood basketball star, honed her skills as a kid on the courts at the Gold Crown Foundation, but as her parents learned this year, the foundation is about a lot more than sports.
Mackenzie was killed in car accident in March, and when a Holger and Denise Forrest were looking for ways to honor their daughter’s memory, they learned about the enrichment programs at the Gold Crown Foundation, which provide for youth in the area. So the Forrests decided that money raised for the Mackenzie Forrest Legacy Fund would go towards boosting those services.
“People think about Gold Crown as just a place for basketball or volleyball, they don’t realize all the other things behind the scenes,” Denise said.
