Chicago Futsal Academy Family is so thankful for all the teams that came out to participate in our first charity event on October 18th. The Save the Ta Tas Tournament raised a total of $960, and 100% went toward breast cancer research. We were overwhelmed with the amazing talent and sportsmanship displayed that night by all the players and volunteers.
Congratulations to the top performers in the tournament with the WSC Supporters winning first place with an incredible last minute comeback against Manchester United. Balkanika and Rack Attack tied for third place, and fell out of contention by only a couple tournament points. As an organization, we will continue to provide more charity opportunities in the 3 v 3 arena to help our local community. Stay tuned for our upcoming tournaments to provide food for needy families and organization in Chicago and internationally . Thanks again to all the participants for donating their time, talent and money to such great cause!
