One of the main activities that takes place during the festival is a soccer tournament between farmworkers from different camps. Soccer is very important to workers, providing exercise and entertainment. Most workers from Latin American countries have grown up loving the game, which is gaining popularity in the United States, as demonstrated by the 4th world cup victory of the US women’s team!
EFWM is organizing two soccer-game fundraisers between its supporters and players from the local farmworker/immigrant community. Our hope is that we can provide a space where members of both communities can interact and have fun, while raising the much needed funds to support our work.
We are asking each player from the Supporters Team to raise money before the game.
We need a team of 14 men and a team of 14 women to make this work, so we are counting on your donation of talent, time, and fundraising skills to make this event a success. Our goal is to raise $7,000!
Players must be 18 years or older.
