On Sunday, November 3rd, soccer players and fans throughout Birmingham and Central Alabama are invited to play the 9th Annual Lily Soccer-Golf Tournament at Lily Field (1220 50th Street South Birmingham 35222), Altamont School’s home soccer field, between 1:00pm to 3:30pm.
A fun family friendly event, monies raised from the tournament supports pediatric cancer awareness and research. Register today – HERE.
According to a BUSA news release, the game of Soccer-Golf meant a great deal to Lily when she was unable to play soccer because of her treatments.
Here is an excerpt from the release:
“During her treatment Coach Gibson and Coach Matt Kirkpatrick would go play Soccer-Golf with her (Lily) as she could no longer play the game that she loved and was so good at. It was a time where she could escape and enjoy competing again.”
Altamont coach Matt Kirkpatrick recently described those moments on 33/40’s Talk of Alabama.
Open to Everyone!
You do not have to be a soccer player or golfer to enjoy Soccer-Golf. You can join the tournament or just hang out an enjoy the live music, food, prizes, and swag.
In case you have not played Soccer-Golf before, it is just like golf. You kick a soccer ball into a “hole” goal. The person with the least kicks wins.
Support a good cause, honor and support Lily Rushton and children with pediatric cancer and enjoy the a beautiful Sunday afternoon with family and friends.
