We're all playing soccer in a ball gowns and black tie to raise money for at-risk kids from Soccer In The Streets
The goal is to get kids off the streets, out of gangs and away from drugs and crime. We do that through our life skills soccer program, called Positive Choice Soccer and each year we hold an event with a difference: The Black Tie Soccer Game. We, the intrepid volunteers dress in black tie and ball gowns (preferably the men) and scrummage it out in a soccer game supported by people like you.
Last year we raised $30,000 for kids and this time around we'd like to kick it out the park. Andre (that's him to the left wearing that ridiculous hat) will be defending his title as the Big Cheese fundraiser, so make your player and help us to a bigger success.
The big game will take place on 3rd October, 2010 in Atlanta, GA. @ Park Tavern (Monroe & 10th Street) and Piedmont Park, 3pm.
We're happy that you would like to pledge one of us. Here's some help when you're making your decision about the amount :
$25 = gets1 kid to graduate our 10-step life skills program
$50 = buys enough equipment to outfit 5 kids for a year (RECOMMENDED)
$100 = runs a entire community program for 1 month
