A football match in Prospect on Saturday raised $283 for the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens to help support their Breast Cancer Awareness program.
The game pitted the young Ghezzi Girls of Montessori By The Sea against a rag-tag team of parents. The youth team is sponsored by Ghezzi Plumbing Contractors Ltd.
‘The children really enjoyed the game,as did the parents!,’ said Rashada Clarke, an organiser. ‘It’s times like these that kids will remember. Parents taking the time to do things like this with their kids send a wonderful message. And we showed our children that raising money to help other people can be fun!’
The Ghezzi Girls won after the drawn match went to a penalty shootout.
