National Cattle Congress.Find A Dream is a nonprofit organization that is trying to improve local communities. Their mission is to attain a safe and supportive environment for youth and young adults of diverse social, economic and ethnic backgrounds.

Barmuda decided to join forces with this organization in order to give back to the community.“Barmuda cares about children, especially disadvantaged youth, and we believe the mixed martial arts program can serve as a positive influence on children who need it,” said Barmuda Companies owner Darin Beck.According to Beck, Barmuda has a long line of diverse restaurants and local “hot spots,” so they decided to give something more to the community. By joining forces with Find A Dream and Thunder Promotions, they hope to provide opportunities for the people of Cedar Falls, Waterloo and surrounding communities.“Barmuda cares about children, and when times get tough in family situations, there needs to be more organizations like Find A Dream who are there for us and kids who are less fortunate,” says Lori McConville, secretary and board member of Barmuda.More than 1,000 free tickets were given to families, and many others were sold.
