Metro Vancouver.....The KPU women's soccer program extend a great, big thank you to everyone who supported their fundraiser at Delta Lion pub last Friday evening.
The fundraiser was a success and raised $6140.00 towards the program's 2014 exhibition trip to Alberta.
Brittany McNeill, apprentice coach and fundraiser organizer, was pleased with the outcome. "We appreciate the outpour of generosity from the community," she says, "From the sponsors, to the donors, to the volunteers, and members of the community who came out and helped us surpass our goal, we are very thankful for your contributions. We look forward to an incredible athletic season".
McNeill and the women's soccer program would like to thank Delta Lion Pub for hosting the event. They would also like to extend a special thank you to KPU President Alan Davis for his participation in the night's events, as well as KPU Eagles Director of Athletics and Recreation, David Kent for lending his voice to the night as emcee.

Both Eagles soccer programs kick off the regular PACWEST/CCAA season at home at Newton Athletic Park on Wednesday, September 3; the women's game begins at 5:00pm, the men's game begins at 7:00pm.
