Santa Fund Soccer Classic

For the 6th year in a row, the Greater Johnstown School District is hosting the Cambria-Somerset Senior All-Star Soccer Classic, benefiting the Santa Fund.

Since it was created 8 years ago, the Santa Fund has distributed more than $200,000 in toys to children throughout our region. This effort has many partners: Girl Scouts, the Alternative Community Resource Program’s Family Center, AmeriCorps, Boscov’s, WRCO Radio, the United Way of the Laurel Highlands, The Tribune-Democrat, and the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies.

What the group has done has been outstanding—over 15,000 Christmas gifts have gone to children who otherwise may have had none.

The Greater Johnstown School District has offered once again to organize a Cambria-Somerset Senior All-Star Soccer Classic to benefit the Santa Fund.

On Saturday, November 19, 2016, at Trojan Stadium, a doubleheader will be held, featuring all-star senior girls and then senior boys teams. The girls’ game will start at 1pm with boys’ game immediately afterwards.

The Tribune-Democrat has a full roster of nominations, which were submitted by coaches throughout the region.

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 promotions, WCRO Radio, over the PA system, 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.

You can also become a Santa Booster for a $25 donation. Boosters will be listed in the Roster Guide to be distributed on game day and in The Tribune-Democrat.

This is a great cause and a great testament to our community. Please recognize the high school athletes and support the Santa Fund. If you’re interested in being a sponsor or in becoming a Santa Booster, please be in touch with Marisa Nelson at the CFA. Her info: mnelson@cfalleghenies.org, or 814-596-7741, ext.116.

The deadline is Monday, November 7, 2016.

We welcome all contributions. Donate anytime online.
