Glory Be To Kids


Welcome to the GBTK family, our 2014 beneficiary




Special Spaces is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and our mission is simple but zealous. It is to create dream bedrooms for children with life threatening illnesses; a place that only the child can dream of or imagine while addressing their medical needs. Special Spaces was founded on the precedent that children battling a life threatening illness need their own special space. It should be a special space of hope and inspiration and a place to find peace and comfort!

We are united in the belief that there is no greater cause than that of a child."Glory Be to Kids" strives to make a difference in the lives of children in need.


Began to honor the memory of one friend and to help one child, today, "Glory Be to Kids" is a celebration of ALL children. It is a celebration of community and of friendship.

By combining our love of children with our love of sports, funds are raised through various events. Each year a different local children's charity is chosen as a recipient and all money raised is donated to them.
