The Fourth Annual MMU Soccer For a Cause Tournament

August 3, 2012 by  

This coming Saturday, August 4th, the Michael Magro Foundation and the Master Mind Unit will be co-hosting the fourth annual Soccer For A Cause Tournament. There will be about 20 teams participating in the event, each one consisting of

between eight and 12 members. Each team will field seven players at a time, six position players and one goalie. The first game will start at 9 a.m., and the tournament will run until the final teams face off against each other, which is usually at about 4 p.m. It cost $500 for each team to enter, and all proceeds are given to the Michael Magro Foundation.

The Foundation holds this fundraiser in an effort to raise money to help families with the incidental costs of medical coverage, such as food, gas, and other basic needs. It was created by Paul and Terrie Magro after their son, Michael, died of leukemia at the age of 13. The Master Mind Unit was created by several people who wanted to try and benefit the Hicksville community. It has existed for five years and has been teamed up with the Michael Magro Foundation for the last four.

The tournament will be held at the Kevin Kolm Field in Hicksville, New York. While the teams are charged entry, it is free to attend the tournament and cheer them on. There will also be live music and other entertainment provided.

It is likely that printing services will be working to create flyers to promote this event as well as informational brochures about the organizations and the causes they support. A free event is a great opportunity to help and raise awareness.
