It’s simple! You choose the amount you wish to donate. For every $8 contributed, the Crew Soccer Foundation gives a game ticket to a child from kid-focused organizations and agencies. Participating organizations include, but are not limited to: Easter Seals, Boys & Girls Clubs, Columbus Recreation Centers, Franklin County Children Services, Ronald McDonald House, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Project Linden.
