The first Santa Fund Soccer Classic proved to be a success, so get ready for the second installment of the boys and girls all-star soccer games to benefit The Tribune-Democrat Santa Fund.
Over the last five years, the Santa Fund has distributed nearly $80,000 in toys to area children with the help of various volunteer groups. More than 2,500 Christmas gifts have gone to children in need.
This year's soccer classic, which features the best senior boys and girls players in the area, takes place Sunday, Nov. 18 at Johnstown High School. The girls game is set to start at 1:30 p.m. with the boys game to follow.
Area coaches are being asked to nominate their players for the game. Those nominations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call sports editor Mike Kovak at 814-532-5085.
