Santa Paula Chevrolet teams up with Santa Paula AYSO to help raise funds
Published: September 12, 2012
In the spirit of teamwork taught by youth sports, Santa Paula Chevrolet is teaming up with AYSO Region 82, Santa Paula to provide their players and coaches with soccer kits filled with equipment bags, pop-up nets, sport cones, scrimmage vests, t-shirts, a sponsorship check and an opportunity to help them raise funds.
Santa Paula AYSO will have the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fundraising opportunity where one lucky recipient will win his or her choice of a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox or Cruze. Another lucky winner will receive a Home Entertainment Package.
Santa Paula Chevrolet and other Los Angeles area Chevrolet dealerships are donating these prizes to participating leagues in the area. One hundred percent of the proceeds collected from the fundraiser go directly to the leagues. The funds may be used in any way the league chooses.
Santa Paula Chevrolet will present a one-time sponsorship check to Santa Paula AYSO. The league also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds for their use as part of a Chevy Youth Soccer Fundraiser. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation, and the league will keep 100% of the proceeds raised. At the end of the fundraiser, there will be four winners of a Chevy Equinox or Chevy Cruze vehicle of choice (up to $24,995 in value), and in each participating market there will be a secondary prize of a home entertainment center valued at $1,000.
Some leagues plan to grant scholarships to families who cannot afford to enroll their children in the league, while others will use the funds to improve fields and equipment.
“We are proud to be able to help the kids in our community by donating equipment and giving them the opportunity to raise much-needed funds for their league. We are excited to be part of the effort this year, and anticipate a fun-filled season with AYSO Region 82, Santa Paula,” said John Macik, Dealer and General Manager for Santa Paula Chevrolet.
