“We are extremely excited that we are able to support our community during this unprecedented time,” Gosha said. “We have been pillars of this community for many, many years and we look forward to that stature in the years to come. For us this was a no-brainer as we are the FAMU Rattlers and we are here to support anyone in this time of need.”
