Your donation not only provides the basics: stadium rental, supplies and preparations, new footballs, and other necessities, it also covers extras that make this tournament special. The final match is a huge event in the community where two teams face off on in a large sports venue, banners welcome the fans, and local sports commentators call the play. First and second place team members receive a Rachel Corrie commemorative medal, a sports tote with a football jersey and football shoes. Special recognition prizes are awarded for Most Valuable Player and for Sportsmanship. After the final game organizers and special guests commune and celebrate a job well done with a delicious Iftar meal.
With your support it will be another great community event.
Thank you for your kind consideration and support.
