Soccer jersey auction nets $3K for Boys & Girls Clubs

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Silverbacks recently auctioned off their game-worn jerseys from their first season in the North American Soccer League.

This auction raised more than $3,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta, according to a release from the Silverbacks.

"Auctioning the jerseys was a great, creative way to raise awareness and funds to support keeping kids in our community healthy," Missy Dugan, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, said in a statement. "We teach our kids every day about the importance of physical activity, good health and positive life choices. We look forward to more great opportunities like this with the Silverbacks."

During the auction, the winning bidders got to meet the players whose jerseys they received, collect autographs and take pictures.

Sending Your Baby To Kindergarten

Sending Your Baby To Kindergarten

 

The school bell will ring soon and many parents will send a child to kindergarten. This is always an emotional time for parents. For some, it will be sending your first born and for others it will be sending the youngest of four. Kindergarten is an important milestone in your child’s life. Your child’s maturity will grow tremendously this year and you’ll get to see a small glimpse of how your hard work over the past 5 years has shaped your child. It wasn’t that long ago that you held your precious baby in your arms for the first time. Where did the time go? Now it’s time to send that little baby off to kindergarten. For most this will be the first full school day, the first  year to ride the school bus, the first year to have homework, and the first year when peer influences begin to play a role.
