What a wonderful group of friends I, and my family, have. $1670 raised thus far for the #soccer fund dedicated to my, and our, dad.  See more

THE STORY:

Our father, George M. Zielbauer, maintained a lifelong passion for soccer, as a player (for 5 decades), youth coach and as a supporter of the game and the sportsmanship it inspires. Dad died, suddenly and unexpectedly, on January 12, 2014.

A few years after arriving in the United States from Germany, he and a group of other young guys founded the Aurora Kickers soccer club in 1959. To honor his love for the sport, and to assist promising young players - particularly those from disadvantaged or immigrant backgrounds - advance their access to soccer, we are creating the George Zielbauer Soccer Scholarship Fund.

We intend to establish this fund as a continuing scholarship, in cooperation with the Fox Valley Kickers, a soccer club in Aurora, IL, which became our dad's American home town after he emigrated with his family from post-war Europe in 1955. George was born in Elek, Hungary, in 1939, and spent several years of his youth in Bavaria before his family immigrated to the United States.  

We hope to receive enough ongoing donations to create a sustainable annual soccer scholarship to benefit deserving young players to whom soccer is an important athletic, social and character-building activity.

THANK YOU for honoring George's life and memory with a donation. We know our dad would be humbled and thrilled to know he is the inspiration for this fund. 

ABOUT THE CHARITY RECEIVING YOUR DONATIONS: All donations are being held by the Roadmonkey Foundation, which is a registered 501c3 charity founded by George's eldest son, Paul. The foundation will forward 100% of the donations to the Fox Valley Kickers soccer club, to establish the soccer schoarship. 

All donors will receive a letter of thanks documenting your tax-deductible donation, and we endeavor to create a permanent webpage, perhaps on the soccer club's website, to announce the young people who are selected to benefit from the George Zielbauer-inspired fund.

Servus!

Thank you for your generosity to this legacy cause.

We are friends of Paul and had the good fortune to meet his father on one of the best days of his life-- his son's wedding. He was clearly a wonderful and joyous man who we know is utterly irreplaceable. Just trust that he is not as far as it might feel and that love is forever. 3 years ago
