Ambassadors partner with Playworks of Oakland/East Bay
FC Bay Area Ambassadors partnership with Playworks will bring kids and families out to enjoy a night of soccer.
Proceeds from Adult Ticket Sales will go directly to the Playworks Oakland/East Bay organization and kids and parents alike are encouraged to spread the word and help a worthy cause.
“Playworks is the only nonprofit organization in the country to send trained, full-time program coordinators, called "coaches" to low-income, urban schools, where they transform recess and play into a positive experience that helps kids and teachers get the most out of every learning opportunity throughout the school day. The coaches become part of the school community, working full-time to provide organized play and physical activity through the five components of the Playworks program. They organize games and activities during recess, provide individual class game times and run a leadership development program during school hours. They also run Playworks tutoring and physical activity programs and developmental sports leagues during after school hours.” -- www.playworks.org
Kids get in free with a ticket and Bay Area Ambassadors FC players will be available after the game for autographs.
A portion of all adult ticket sales will be donated to support Playworks Oakland/East Bay programs.
When: Saturday, May 28, 2011 6 p.m.
Where: Chabot College - 25555 Hesperian Blvd. Hayward, CA
Kids at a Playworks partner school can pick a free ticket from their Playworks Coach, or contact Kyonne Isacc, East Bay Community Engagement Coordinator.
