Celtics Trivia Champs

Congratulations to our Celtics Trivia Champs! We raised over $2000 for the Bill Purcell and Brian Schrader Soccership Fund. Thank you to everyone who came out last night!

About the Soccership Fund:

Competition. Friendship. Family. Fun. 

All of these words define the spirit of the Celtics’ culture. We are a collection of teams dedicated to these values and inspired by all those who possess them. Our kids are blessed by dedicated parents and coaches, terrific teammates which equates to a wonderfully supportive community. That is who we are.

Bill Purcell, a parent and “Founding Father” of the Celtics in our community, perfectly personified the above attributes; Brain Schrader, a thirteen year old “happy go lucky” Celtics player, loved soccer and embraced our culture. Tragically, both individuals were taken away from us in recent years. It is in Bill & Brians’ honor and memory that we have built the "Celtics Soccership” to teach our players the importance of Community and Charity. Our Celtics, with your help, will continue to demonstrate teamwork as they work together to share and contribute to others, just as your donation will. Soccership donations may be used for a variety of things within the club, including but not limited to: financial assistance for club player fees, subsidizing summer camp costs, and covering operational expenses that will further allow the club to spread its culture throughout the community.
