DC Scores Soccer Ball is this Thursday. Tickets are still on sale.

DC SCORES bridges the academic and athletic development of youth by providing them with creative writing and soccer activities each day after-school and for five weeks during the summer. Beginning with only five schools in 1994, DC SCORES has quickly expanded to 23 participating elementary and middle schools within the District. Operating in Wards 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, DC SCORES has worked with more than 4000 8-14 year olds and over 300 coaches and writing instructors in the D. C. Public Schools.

On April 30th their 2009 Soccer Ball will take place. BUY YOUR TICKETS TODAY.

The Soccer Ball is a mixed forum that will feature a combination of lounge-style seating and open high tables. The Soccer Ball, highlighted in BizBash Magazine as one of “Washington’s Top 100 Events,” is DC SCORES’ annual fundraising gala, a night filled with music, student performances, and the inspired cuisine of Latin Concepts’ restaurants. The Soccer Ball will also feature a live and silent auction boasting a variety of items from jewelry to sports memorabilia, trips and dining experiences. Approximately 400 guests from the Washington, DC business and philanthropic community are expected to attend. The 2009 Soccer Ball is presented by Latin Concepts and sponsored by DC Magazine.
