What are we Western New Yorkers if not the sort of people who take care of those who need a hand? We don’t need anyone to tell us to do what’s right; We just do the thing and don’t expect anything in return. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do?
Well, we here at FC Buffalo are finally in the position to give back in the ways we want to, from a round of applause for “Tough Kids” like Chris Boinski to giving away what we don’t need. It’s in that spirit that we’re proud to offer free admission to our Sunday, May 27th game versus AFC Cleveland (3 p.m. EST) to anyone who brings gently-worn (read: no holes) cleats or balls for Buffalo Soccer Club, a terrific organization in the City of Buffalo of whom we’re very proud.
From the BSC web site:
Buffalo Soccer Club (BSC) was established in 2007 as a pilot program of Algonquin Sports for Kids, Inc., to enhance the lives of young people living in the City of Buffalo through sports and educational activities that are rooted in fun, ethical principles. BSC utilizes sports as a platform to encourage youth and family development in a safe environment by focusing on healthy life choices, the development of athletic identity, and positive behavior changes-specifically an increase in self-discipline, personal responsibility, and respect for self and others.
Since its inception, BSC has provided over 400 different children with an opportunity to play soccer in the City of Buffalo.
So, help a great organization out and come watch our boys get after Cleveland. It’s a winning combination and thank you for your time.
