Santa Fund High School Soccer Classic
November 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$5.00
The Greater Johnstown School District has offered again to host a Cambria-Somerset All-Star Soccer Classic to benefit the Tribune-Democrat Santa Fund.
Over the past nine years, the Tribune Democrat Santa Fund has distributed nearly $250,000 in toys to area children. Various groups volunteered to make this happen—the many people from throughout the region who contributed, the Girl Scouts, the Alternative Community Resource Program’s Family Center, AmeriCorps, the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies, the United Way of the Laurel Highlands, Boscov’s, WCRO Radio, and The Tribune-Democrat.
What the group has done has been outstanding—tens of thousands of Christmas gifts have gone to children who otherwise may have had none.
Now another wonderful gesture has been made that will help the Santa Fund serve even more children: The Greater Johnstown School District has offered to organize a Cambria-Somerset All-Star Soccer Classic to benefit the Santa Fund.
On Saturday, November 17, 2018 at Trojan Stadium, a doubleheader will be held featuring all-star senior girls’ and then senior boys’ teams. The girls’ game will start at 1:00 with the boys’ game immediately following.
The Santa Fund partners are seeking sponsorships for this event at the following levels:
- $1,000 to become a Santa’s Reindeer
- $500 to become a Santa’s Elf
- $250 to become a Santa’s Helper
Your sponsorship will be featured in The Tribune-Democrat promotional ads and in the Roster Guide at Trojan Stadium. For commitments of $500 and above, your logo or name will appear on the players’ game shirts. Your support will help to present the game and all net revenue, every penny, will go directly for more toys for kids in our area.
This is a great cause and a great testament to our community. Please recognize the high school athletes and support the Santa Fund.
