I would like to be a volunteer for the upcoming Albert Pujols 10th Cilebrity Golf Classic because as you say you have to give back to your community. Our sons believe in giving back and PAY IT FORWARD, our youngest son Vlincent Velasques was drafted on June 8th 2010, first pick of the 2nd round to the Houston Astros, so we have a lot in common as a baseball family. Sincerely: God Bless
