Submitted by AEG
AEG’s LA Galaxy recently raised more than $215,000 to benefit the club’s LA Galaxy Champion Project, which benefits elementary school students, during its annual LA Galaxy Golf Tournament presented by San Manuel Casino on June 10.
The event was held at Rolling Hills Country Club in Los Angeles and welcomed more than 140 golfers, in addition to LA Galaxy celebrities including current players, alumni and coaching staff and was hosted by the LA Galaxy Foundation with official Galaxy partners Herbalife Nutrition, Dignity Heath and Alcatel.
The LA Galaxy Champion Project, which launched Spring 2019, focuses exclusively on local Carson elementary schools within a five-mile radius of Dignity Health Sports Park. Students at these 10 elementary schools receive various programming and support from the LA Galaxy throughout the year, including dedicated on-site events and specialized soccer items at each school. As part of the LA Galaxy Champion Program, nearly 5,000 Carson youth will have the opportunity and resources to play soccer throughout the entire school year.
