Brandon McThay started his nonprofit agency, The Florida Vipers, in the midst of a challenging 2009 economy. The Florida Vipers encourages underprivileged youth in Deerfield Beach to succeed in every aspect of life. But Brandon passionately believed that using basketball in a fun and educational way would attract youth to his program — and so did one of his first benefactors, Barry Honig.
The results have been nothing short of astounding. The Florida Vipers serve more than 200 youths (grades 3-11) through boys and girls basketball squads. The program has a 99% graduation rate and continues to grow each year. This would not have been possible without support of the Barry and Renee Honig Charitable Foundation .
