Winner's Circle History

– Mike Schmidt’s Winner’s Circle Charities –
Winner’s Circle Charities
Former Major League Baseball player Mike Schmidt founded this Winner’s Circle Charities (WCC) with a small group of friends over dinner 20 years ago. Since its inception, WCC has raised more than $2 million in funds distributed to various charities including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, American Cancer Society, Cleveland Clinic, Marine Institute Education Foundation, Riviera Beach Maritime Academy, Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation and Waterfront Way Foundation. WCC strives to focus on doing good work in our community.

When Rob Thomson of Waterfront Properties and Steve Moynihan of HMY Yachts joined as hosts with Mike in 2012, the impact and outreach of our efforts has grown tremendously.  We continue to form new valuable relationships, and these partnerships all work together to raise funds.  It is an exciting time for the Winner’s Circle family.

Mike might be one of the greatest baseball players of all time, but his commitment and dedication to charitable fundraising gives him something intangible for which there is no Hall of Fame, a legacy of making a difference in many lives.

From all of us at WCC, here’s to our past winners with hopes of many more to come.
