Kickin For Kitty Soccer Tournament Announced

I've written before about Kitty Jordan and the Kitty Miracle Fund that has been created to help those with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Well, I just received this email from my buddy Victor who is the Tournament Director for the Kickin For Kitty Soccer Tournament that will be held on September 4-6th in Huntsville in support of the Kitty's Miracle Fund.

Kitty's parents, Tim and Martha Jordan, were out at Rocket City's United Youth Night last Saturday and were presented with a ball and jersey signed by the RCU players and staff. RCU in conjunction with 9 local businesses raised over $2,000 dollars for Kitty's Miracle Fund.

Here's Victor's email:

Dear Players/Coaches/Directors,

You are cordially invited to participate in the First Annual Kickin’ For
Kitty Soccer Tournament on September 4-6, 2009 hosted by Kitty’s Miracle
Fund in Huntsville, Alabama. Kitty’s Miracle Fund is a non-profit
organization helping Tennessee Valley families cope with the expenses
associated with the treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). The goal
of the Fund is to provide afflicted families with some financial reprieve
after they have surpassed their insurance cap and are forced to pay for
treatment out-of-pocket. The goal of the Tournament is to have fun and
raise money for these families.

The competition is a 6v6 non-sanctioned tournament. Age groups will
consist of 6 divisions: U8, U10, U12, U14, High School, and Adult.
Brackets will be determined based on the number of teams registered.
Registration is $400 per team, with a $150 deposit due at time of
enrollment. The remaining balance is due at check-in on September 4th.
Teams that register early (before August 7th) will receive a 10% discount
on their registration fee.

For more information, please visit our website
(http://www.kickinforkitty.org) or contact Victor Collazo Perez
(Tournament Director) at director@kittysmiraclefund.org.

Remember, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and what better
way to kick off the month of September than with the Inaugural Kickin' For
Kitty Charity Soccer Tournament. Thank you for supporting this noteworthy
cause. I look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,

Victor Collazo Perez
Tournament Director
