In the spirit of teamwork taught by youth sports, Neuville GM of Waupaca is teaming up with Waupaca High School to provide players and coaches with soccer kits filled with equipment bags, soccer balls, sport cones, practice jerseys and T-shirts; a monetary donation; and an opportunity to help them raise funds.
WHS will have the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fund-raising opportunity where one lucky recipient will win his or her choice of a 2010 Chevrolet Equinox or Malibu. Another lucky winner will receive a home entertainment package.
Neuville GM and other Green Bay-area Chevrolet dealerships are donating these prizes to participating leagues in the area. One-hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the leagues, which can use the funds any way they choose.
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,” Tim Neuville of Neuville GM said. “We are excited to be part of the effort this year and anticipate a fun-filled season with Waupaca High School.”
The dealership will present a monetary donation to the school. The league also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds for their use as part of a Chevrolet youth soccer fund-raiser. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fund-raiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation and the league will keep 100 percent of proceeds raised.
