Press Release: Celebrate the opening of soccer season and the power of sports to change lives! The Seattle University Project on Family Homelessness and Golazo, Inc. will host a party and screening of the film about the Homeless World Cup, “Kicking It,” on Tuesday night, March 13.
The evening starts with a great soccer-themed pre-party at Golazo, Inc., 714 E. Pike at 4:30 p.m., with Lawrence Cann, founder and CEO of Street Soccer USA. Then we’ll cross the street for the film screening and Q&A with Lawrence at 7 p.m. at the Egyptian.
The event benefits Street Soccer Seattle, the organization that serves youth ages 18-25, one of the fastest-growing segments of the homeless population. Street Soccer Seattle is one of the 20 cities affiliated with Cann’s organization, which uses soccer for social change and reports a 75 percent success rate in moving its participants into education, jobs, housing and better health outcomes.
Reminder: Seattle U will host Looking Into Light, the national touring photo exhibit from the National Center on Family Homelessness, beginning Monday, March 5 at Seattle’s City Hall. See the details here.
Thanks to our friends at VivaGolazo.com for hosting this party.
The Project on Family Homelessness is funded by a grant from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
