Don’t miss out on this exciting event!
The morning after facing D.C. United, Chivas USA Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy headed to Memphis, Tennessee to visit the young patients of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of MLS W.O.R.K.S.
Ambassador Kennedy’s day started off in the Target House of St. Jude Hospital, where more than 100 families are housed, free of charge, while their children recover in the neighboring hospital. Kennedy then headed to St. Jude where he was given a tour of the hospital before getting down to business. From 2-4pm, Dan met several patients (and soccer fans) that are being treated or recovering from various life-threatening diseases. Although he was there to visit all the patients he could, there was one little guy in focus, Archie. The eight-year old patient from Atlanta was the main visit that the Chivas goalkeeper had planned throughout the day. A soccer-related conversation later, Dan gave an excited Archie an autographed jersey, and for the memory, the photograph (above- photo courtesy of MLS W.O.R.K.S.)
In this Saturday’s match against Real Salt Lake at The Home Depot Center, Dan will welcome Drew (11) and Brooke, two former patients of St. Jude, before the game in what will be Children’s Cancer Awareness Night. Make sure to look out for Dan and his two guests Saturday night!
This past weekend, Chivas USA culminated its 5th year of Chivas at the Park Soccer Clinics. As a result of the program, 23,000 boys and girls in the Los Angeles area received affordable soccer training and learned how to live healthier lifestyles. Chivas USA is looking forward to continuing to work with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and the Mayor’s Office next year. Thanks to everyone that participated and made these clinics so successful!
Major League Soccer and MLS W.O.R.K.S. have pledged to not tolerate discrimination, bias or harassment of any kind. Don't cross the line! MLS W.O.R.K.S. will make a donation to help stop discrimination for every pledge made during the 2012 season. Chivas USA takes the pledge... do you?
It’s that time of the year again; Fundación Chivas de Corazon’s 6th Annual Golf Tournament is getting closer! The big event this year will take place on October 22 in Rancho Golf Course in Los Angeles, the top public Golf Course in the nation. And in case you didn’t hear, Chivas USA has teamed up with the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles, IME Becas and Loyola Marymount University to help raise money for a scholarship fund for low income students.
All Chivas USA players and coaching staff will be on site testing their skills and, you wouldn’t want to miss out on that (there are some players that might hit a couple of windshields.) After a long day out on the green, all attendees will be able to chill out in the Beach-themed party in the golf course grounds with the ChivaGirls!
Sponsorship opportunities start at $750 per player. If you would like to participate, make sure to contact our Community Relations Department at (310) 630-4550.
