On Saturday, December 2, 2017, LA Galaxy San Diego will hold the 5th annual Giving Back fundraiser. The fundraiser consists of in-house scrimmages between our younger competitive teams. In total, over the past four events we have managed to raise over $50,000 for worthy community causes. These raised monies have made a life changing impact and, in certain instances, a life saving impact in our local community.
We are strongly encouraging all participating players to donate $10 each per game played (monies will be collected by Team Mangers – cash or check (made out to ‘Mitchell Thorp Foundation’).
Mitchel Thorp Foundation
This year the chosen recipient will be the very worthy Carlsbad based charity, the Mitchell Thorp Foundation. We chose the Mitchell Thorp Foundation due to their fantastic work supporting families whose children suffer from life-threatening illnesses, diseases and disorders, by providing financial, emotional and resource support to their desperate situation. We feel this is an especially well suited cause to help make our young players aware and empathetic that not everyone their age is fortunate enough or in a position to be able to play sports. To find out a little bit more about the Mitchell Thorp Foundation please view the video below or visit their website at: http://mitchellthorp.org/
VIA MAIL – Please send checks via mail to:
Mitchell Thorp Foundation, 6965 El Camino Real, #105-433, Carlsbad, CA 92009 (make note on check for ‘LAGSD Giving Back Fundraiser’ so we can track donations)
These events define our club and our community spirit. We really appreciate your help and know that the Mitchell Thorp Foundation and the families they assist are extremely grateful for your support!
