PWSI Gala Celebration

Join us on February 23 at 7PM for the PWSI Gala Celebration!

We will be dining, dancing, and celebrating the PWSI's contributions to the community. PWSI has been instrumental in providing meaningful programs such as TOPSoccer, Soccer for Success, Recreational soccerSelect soccer over the years, touching the lives of thousands of soccer players and their families . PWSI strives to provide all these important experiences through soccer, but we want to continuing growing and expanding these programs to have the highest quality of facilities and opportunities for community participation.

All proceeds for this event will go to supporting those programs through field improvements at Howison Park, financial assistance for our players, and directly funding free community programs like TOPSoccer. As well as your attendance at the Gala, PWSI is seeking donations from businesses and organizations in our community for the silent auction. Your donations would be a tax-deductible gift to PWSI that would truly help make the annual fundraiser a successful event.
