PRLog - Aug. 9, 2011 - MADISON, S.D. -- SoccerMadison’s debut fall 2011 season has yet to get underway, but the youth soccer association’s fundraising campaign has kicked off already, with the group announcing the signing of its first “Fab Five” sponsor.

Dairy Queen owner DeLon Mork has agreed to contribute $1,000 to receive a bundle of marketing perks over the next two years from the group. He feels strongly about programs that benefit the area’s youth.

“Helping an organization that’s focused on getting kids active and fit is an honor,” Mork said. “It’s great to finally see Madison getting a youth soccer association.”

SoccerMadison plans to raise at least $10,000 by the end of the year with half of that coming through five exclusive sponsorships. The group has received nonprofit status from the Internal Revenue Service, making donations tax deductible.

Plans are to use the money to equip Baughman-Belatti Park with appropriate-sized goals for US Youth Soccer’s small-sided games format, to purchase training equipment and software, and to market the association.

Supporting SoccerMadison’s stated goal of building the best soccer association in the state is a worthwhile cause, according to board member Russell Olson.

“Having a soccer association here puts us on equal footing with other communities in the state,” said Olson, Heartland Consumers Power District’s manager of community and economic development and a District 8 state senator. “You can’t underestimate how important that is to recruiting businesses to our area.”

Area businesses should have already received a fundraising letter and brochure. If you would like to know more or receive a brochure, e-mail info@soccermadison.org or call founder and president Jeff Boldt at 605-270-2124.

SoccerMadison is a local nonprofit corporation dedicated to providing children, their families and the Interlakes area with a positive soccer experience — at all ages and skill levels — that emphasizes having fun, getting fit, and building character through teamwork and sportsmanship.
