Thank you to all the volunteers at the Team Breezy Collegiate Cup Event! A message from Team Breezy...
"We wanted to pass on a very big thank you from Team Breezy for a successful Team Breezy Collegiate Cup! The weather gods smiled upon us and the visual of soccer, families and fun made it a wonderful day. We want to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for every last thing that you did, whether you baked cookies, collected money, put on tattoos, played soccer, served nachos, supported a cast of endless volunteers, sold candy...the list is endless. We could not have done it without each and every one of you! Thank you for being there to make a difference in the lives of those that will benefit from yesterday proceeds. More importantly you have shown our community the gift of philanthropy by bringing your children, your parents, your teams, your friends and families to show the true meaning of "paying it forward" for Team Breezy. You have forever changed lives!"
