2nd Annual McDonald's "Soccer Saturday" Promotion a HUGE Success!


On March 2nd, Arizona Youth Soccer Association partnered on a promotion with the central and northern Arizona McDonald’s locations called, “Soccer Saturday!”  The purpose of the event was to raise much needed money for players in financial need.
That day, over 20 AYSA member clubs participated by “Adopting” McDonald’s locations near their home area. These clubs then worked hard to drive in counter sales for just two-hours between the hours of 11am to 1pm that day. The end result for a one-day/two hour fundraising event was a check from McDonald’s in the amount of  $10,000.00!

The check was presented by Mr. Jerry Wernau, an Owner/Operator of McDonald's on Saturday, April 8th at the Scottsdale Sports Complex during Arizona State Cup.  Pictured above Mr. Wernau and members of the Banat Soccer Club '96B team and their coach Rick Kelsey (Kelsey also serves as VP of Administration for AYSA).
In the end, these funds will be split with 70% going back to each club and 30% to the AYSA Olympic Development Program (ODP) to help youth soccer players and their families in financial need.
AYSA would like to thank McDonald’s for their incredible generosity and their continued efforts to be a tremendous community partner to support youth soccer in Arizona. Further, AYSA would like to thank all clubs that participated… Well done!
