Agawam Soccer Charities has been doing very well of late. Since being formed last fall (see letter under the Agawam Soccer Charities Tab) the Charities Fund has been growing. All of your efforts in selling the raffle tickets this past season was able to produce approximately $6500 in funds for the account. ASA has already set aside our yearly scholarship money for AHS seniors and has generously donated money to many families in town connected to Agawam Soccer that have had: deaths, illness, and other unfortunate circumstances. We are very proud of this initiative and the response from people that have received funds has been touching.
As we move forward in growing this initiative we want to form a Golf Tournament Committee. One thing we have learned over the years is to not try and do everything yourself and to get people involved. We are asking our members if anyone has experience in running successful golf tournaments and if they would be willing to help or chair the Golf Committee for Agawam Soccer. All proceeds to fund the Agawam Soccer Charities initiative. We like to keep our need based and charitable donations private, but anyone willing to help with this cause I can say that you would be proud of where the money has gone and the help that Agawam Soccer Charities will do now and in the future. Its a great initiative for Agawam and for our friends and neighbors in the community.
ASA is looking to do the golf tournament this fall in October at an Agawam golf course.
Please email me directly if interested in either being a chairperson or a committee member for the golf tournament.
