The Comox Valley United Soccer Club’s U12 Girls Select team thank the following local businesses: The Real Canadian Superstore, Costco, Thrifty Foods, Grains Bakery, Canadian Tire and Aquatec Seafoods.
All of the above donated items for use at the team’s concession stand held on Oct. 14, during a soccer jamboree at Queneesh Elementary School. “Without the donations from these businesses, our team would not have been able to raise as much money as it did. A sincere thank you from the girls, the coaches and most of all, the parents, who appreciate the financial relief that fundraising events like this provide,” a team spokesperson said.
This first-year Select team calls themselves Team Millennium. This is a development year for this age group and this particular group has embraced the training and extra soccer with great enthusiasm.
They have some large and small fundraising goals set for this season. The girls want to offset the ferry costs for their trips to Powell River for games and they would also like to attend a Whitecaps soccer camp in the spring which costs $300 per player.
“If anyone would like to learn more about the team, contact us or support our fundraising efforts in any way, please visit the club’s website at www.cvusc.org or for our team’s contact information go to www.cvusc.org/contacts-youthselect and look under U 12 Girls,” the spokesperson said. “Remember the name Team Millennium because you will be hearing lots about them in the near future.”
