Soccer fundraiser a success!
Thank you to all the Yuma, Somerton and San Luis families that participated in the first fundraiser for the Yuma Free Clinic on July 22. On that date our very own Yuma All Stars, a mix of fantastic soccer players from around the city led by Jamie Nicewander and his great team of coaches, played a very talented gold medal winning professional Mexican Nationals U-17 team in a charity match in which all proceeds would go to buying much needed medications for the clinic. Despite the heat, this exciting game was well attended and because of the generosity of the crowd and our sponsors, we made some much needed funds for the Yuma Free Clinic. This huge event could not have been accomplished without an army of volunteers who worked every task from concessions (Living Free Recovery Ranch) to ticket sales at the gates (Women Aglow) to security (Champion Church). Special thanks go to the Limelight Productions, the Board of the Yuma Free Clinic, the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office, Yuma Police Department and countless other volunteers and sponsors. But most of all I thank everyone who bought a ticket or a raffle. Without your support, we couldn’t have made any money for the very poor and uninsured. All of us at the Yuma Free Clinic thank you!
