Texas Outlaws, Fans Look to Give Back to the Community
NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX - The Texas Outlaws have dedicated the final four games of the season to various school and community organizations.
Portions of the revenue generated from the last four games will be donated back to special groups invited to attend the games. "We feel a huge responsibility to give back to our community. Hosting these organizations and giving back to them is just one small thing we can do," commented General Manager Marco Juarez. "We are reaching out to our fans, especially those that can look to give a little more, to support us these last four games." The following is a list of the last four games and the organizations that will be supported:
January 30, 2010 - Outlaws vs. Denver Dynamite - D. McRae Elementary School Night
Tickets are being sold by the students to benefit the PTO. D. McRae is located on the east side of the Fort Worth ISD. They have two youth soccer teams playing in the youth leagues of the arena. Mr. Shannon Elliott, their coach, volunteers his personal time driving students to and from games and keeping the teams organized. Students are enthusiastic about the sport of soccer and find it a welcome relief from the gangs and drugs typically associated with their neighborhood.
February 6, 2010 - Outlaws vs. St. Louis Illusion - Private/Home School Night
Tickets will be sold by the students of various small private and home school groups. Any small private school or home school organization desiring more information about raising funds through ticket sales should contact the Texas Outlaws.
February 21, 2010 - Outlaws vs. Alamo City Warriors (San Antonio) - Special Olympics Night
Special Olympians and their families have been invited to attend the game. Two Special Olympics soccer teams from Arlington will be participating at halftime. All tickets will remain at $18 with 50% of all ticket sales being donated to the Special Olympics of Texas. We are looking for individual and corporate sponsors to buy blocks of tickets that can be utilized for Special Olympians and their families. Go online today to buy your tickets and support Special Olympics.
February 27, 2010 - Outlaws vs. Denver Dynamite - CASA of Tarrant County
This is a cause that hits very close to home for Marco Juarez. "Court Appointed Special Advocates are volunteers that are appointed by family court judges to become the voice of abused and neglected children by making recommendations for safe and permanent homes. My wife and I have been involved with CASA for several years. We have four daughters - none related - that we adopted from the foster care system. I can't read or think about their case files too much without crying about the abuse they endured. My daughters, however, endured far less abuse than many of the children currently in foster care. Kids slip through the cracks and get returned to abusive environments. That happened to one of my daughters who did not have a CASA volunteer before she was returned to foster care. CASA volunteers make sure that doesn't happen."
All tickets will remain at $18 with 50% of all ticket sales being donated to CASA of Tarrant County. We are looking for individual and corporate sponsors to buy blocks of tickets that can be utilized by foster children and their families. Go online today to buy your tickets and support CASA of Tarrant County.
