Greta McEvoy & Caroline Costello and Fontbonne soccer teamed up with Milton High for “Officials Appreciation Week Thank You!”
These girls grew up together & played Milton Travel Soccer. The girls made up goody bags for the long-time referees whom they’ve known throughout their years of playing soccer, softball, basketball. They didn’t know ahead of time who the refs would be so they were happy it was those two legends!
They gave the refs goody bags filled with candy, dunkin donut gift cards & stickers they made that said “Officials Appreciation Week Thank You!” They also gave them thank you certificates from both teams -Fontbonne & Milton High. The team made up a thank you banner & asked the refs to take a picture with them.
Also, they are wearing pink jerseys because they had their breast cancer awareness game the day before. They designed and sold shirts & ran a bake sale which brought in $1,200 for the Ellie Fund. Ava Duffy (one of the captains along with Zyla Cappellano & Greta McEvoy) is the player who designed the pink shirts & organized it. This cause is close to Ava’s heart as her family has been impacted by breast cancer. They played this game the day after the pink game.
This is the Pink game the day before the ref game. They raised $1,200 for the Ellie Fund. The team also took part in the Ellie Fund Walk the previous Sunday.
