Year 4 and I'm thrilled to see how this has grown! It's going to be an amazing event! #blacktiesoccergame

THE STORY:

An off-hand conversation in the office about our impending 20th anniversary has evolved into this - one of the most fun and effective fundraising events we've ever done!  And this year will be bigger and better than ever, complete with a real stadium for the match and celebrity players. 

And more important, the kids will be on hand to share their stories and let all of our supporters know how much their gift means to all of us. 

Whether you're near or far ... whether you can come to the match and cheer us on or cheer from afar, please be a part of this occasion.  It will give some deserving kids a chance to be a successful and productive citizen someday.

 

Soccer in the Streets wrote -

On October 7, 2012, the most amazing soccer game you've ever witnessed will be BIGGER THAN EVER. The match will take place in the Grady High School Stadium, right in the heart of Atlanta, GA. As a tongue-in-cheek protest to the typical formal banquet fundraiser, we host our banquet in the park and attire the soccer players in black tie and ball gowns. Some very sporting Atlanta celebrities, such asBert Weiss of the Bert Show and Frank Ski of V103, will join the festivities this year!

It’s more than fun and games … generous people across the planet pledge their dollars for these unconventional players in their fancy duds (ladies and gentlemen, dresses and tuxes - not necessarily in that order!) to kick about for a serious cause: the kids of metro Atlanta who need a helping hand. All kids deserve a chance for success and Soccer In The Streets empowers kids who lack opportunity to become independent young adults by building character and self reliance through soccer and employment experience.

Complete with a professional British announcer, thrills and spills, hard-nosed tackles (in sequins), jamming music, delicious food and coveted awards for the best dressed players, this is an event not to be missed!
