America's Celebration of Youths' Sports Party will be at the Tustin Marine Corps Air Facility Oct. 24 and 25 in the north blimp hangar.

The event, hosted by the nonprofit United States Youth Athletic Network, will promote programs and activities for youth, said Ron Beaulac, who started the organization eight years ago. Beaulac aims to raise $50,000 for youth groups across the nation.

"We're there to fill the gaps. We don't compete with other organizations," Beaulac said.

Beaulac said he appreciates the warm reception he received from U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Richard McKenzie, the base's officer in charge who has lent his helping hand in the project.
