Naperville, IL (PressExposure) August 23, 2014 -- Players Indoor Sports Center is not only a popular place to play soccer in Naperville, but it is also one of the community's fun places to go for birthdays in Naperville. They have announced that they will be hosting an Illinois Youth Soccer fundraising event, featuring none other than world soccer legend Mia Hamm (http://iysaplayhardplayfair.org). This event will take place on Saturday, October 25th and will raise money for Soccer For Success Programs.
Every registered soccer player will have the chance to play with Mia. All players must register and fundraise in order to be eligible. Players that raise at least $250 will receive the opportunity to have lunch with Mia, accompanied by one parent or guardian. Lunch includes the opportunity to have a photo taken with Mia as well as have any one item autographed by her. Mia will also do a special question and answer segment as part of the lunch. The top ten fundraisers will get to sit at Mia's table during the lunch, while the top two fundraisers will get to sit next to Mia. The lunch with Mia will be followed by a soccer game, where the top 64 fundraisers will have the opportunity to play with Mia. They will be divided into four separate age-based games that are ten minutes each. Mia will play five minutes for each team.
"This event is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for Mia's fans. They will always remember the day they had lunch and got their picture taken with a soccer legend. Not only do they have the opportunity to meet their hero, but in doing so they will also have the satisfaction of raising money for an incredible organization. The Soccer For Success Program is making such a difference in children's lives by empowering them to be active and healthy. Kids benefit so much from the experience of being on a team and working towards a common goal," said Doug Kluener, General Manager of Players Indoor Sports Center (http://www.playersindoor.com).
