The 2nd Annual Scoring for Scleroderma Women's Soccer Tournament to benefit the nonprofit International Scleroderma Network was another huge success! I am not sure of the exact amount that was raised because donations are still coming in, but it is somewhere around $4,000! There were 40 women in the tournament plus volunteers who made this a success. The women were split into five teams and each team played four twenty-five minute games. Registration began at 6:30 and the first games kicked off at 7:30. Our referees, Tony and Igor, gave up their Friday night to donate their referee skills on the fields as well. We had awesome raffle prizes donated and every player received a gift bag of donated items as well. The Canton Sports Plex generously donated the fields again this year. American Acoustical Contractors,Franklin Sports, Dick's Sporting Goods, Bank of Canton, Barrowsville Station Liquor Market & Deli, Brockton Rox, C. Verc Inc., Elegant Accents, Elite Health & Fitness, New England Revolution, Six Flags New England, Somersault Gymnastics Center, Town Spa and Water Country generously donated items such as admission passes, game passes, gift cards, items for our raffle or gift bags (soccer balls, shin guards, tshirts, frisbees, coupons)! Thank you to all of these contributors and to my friends and family who helped along the way and the night of the tournament! Without your contributions and help this year's tournament would not have been a success! Posted 06-25-07 by Lisa Bulman, ISN Fundraiser.
