A 107IST member has generously donated a large group of tickets to the organization with wishes for them to go to youth in the community. The majority of invitees will be recipients of the Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund as well as other local youth. The Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)(3) under the 107IST umbrella.
As a means to raise dollars for the fund and raise awareness of the program, the final four tickets are available for a lucky winner via raffle! In honor of Gisele we'd really like to see this program continue to grow, and for the Portland soccer community to become familiar with it as a resource. Gisele Currier was a beloved member of the Timbers Army whose untimely passing in 2011 was a devastating blow. In memory of Gisele, an outpouring of donations were offered to the 107IST in order to support soccer projects in the metro area in her name. Out of this outpouring of generosity emerged the Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund, which was first awarded in the summer of 2011. Today the fund Scholarships dozens of youths experiencing hardships to be able to play the game they love.
In 2017, the Gisele Currier Scholarship Fund awarded 49 soccer scholarships to youth in and around the Timbers and Thorns academy area for a total of $19,953. In April and May of this year (2018) the GCSF awarded 29 soccer scholarships for a total of $13,055. Scholarship recipients range in age from 8 to 18 years of age, and scholarship award amounts vary based on individual need.
Support GCSF and enter for your chance to win 4 tickets (over $200 value) to the RSL match in the Widmer Southern Front Hospitality Space at Providence Park this Sunday. The section is directly behind the south goal. Bring your friends or follow the spirit and invite some youth.
