They rallied their entire community to supper their grant effort by utilizing social media, events and personal calls to encourage participation. "We are so excited!" said team administrator Harry Demos. "This will help many kids who would otherwise not have been able to participate in special events" "

Girls team 02 Celtic Elite from San Benito, TX and part of the Arroyo Youth Soccer Club will use the Grant towards tournament expenses and equipment for the team. Athletes and parents collaborated at a soccer tournament fundraiser to spread the word within the community in addition to using social media to reach out to friends and family members. Team administrator Dulia Vasquez offered a little piece of advice, "When you set your mind to do something, don’t quit."
