Description

VETERAN / SOCCER FUNDRAISER: NEW HAVEN, Conn.—The 2019 New Haven Kick for Nick Night (#KickForNick), an annual charity fundraiser honoring the soccer dream of a fallen Connecticut soldier by distributing soccer balls to underprivileged children worldwide, will be from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, October 18, 2019 at the Trinity Bar & Restaurant at 157 Orange St., in New Haven. The event will feature raffles, a silent auction, drink specials, hors d’oeuvres, and entertainment. The suggested donation is a new or gently used soccer ball or $15.00 at the door. Details are at KFN.eventbrite.com.

The Kick for Nick Foundation (kickfornick.org) was founded to honor the memory and dream of Wilton, CT native, soccer standout, and U.S. Army soldier PFC Nicholas A. Madaras. The Gold Star family-run charity has collected and distributed more than 54,445 soccer balls to underprivileged children in 53 countries worldwide. The foundation is a registered public charity in Connecticut (CHR.0052019) and an IRS Code 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Now in its 9th year, organizers from the VFW New Haven Post 12150, the American Legion New Haven Post 210, and the Kick for Nick Foundation, welcome back longtime supporters including the Southern Connecticut State University Women’s Soccer Team, the veterans of the Peter P. Monaco Jr. Detachment 40 of the Marine Corps League in Glastonbury, and embrace new and revitalized support from the Knights of St. Patrick, the American Outlaws, the Liverpool Supporters Club of New Haven, and the Trinity Bar & Restaurant.
