INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - Dyer Chevrolet is teaming up with the Indian River Soccer Association to provide their players and coaches with soccer kits filled with equipment bags, pop-up nets, sport cones, scrimmage vests, T-shirts, a sponsorship check and an opportunity to help them raise funds.
The soccer association will have the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fundraising opportunity, where one recipient will win the choice of a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox or Cruze.
Another winner will receive a home entertainment package.
Dyer Chevrolet and other West Palm Beach-area Chevrolet dealerships are donating these prizes to participating leagues in the area.
One-hundred percent of the proceeds collected from the fundraiser go directly to the leagues. The funds may be used in any way the league chooses.
A one-time sponsorship check will be presented by Dyer Chevrolet to Indian River Soccer Association. The league also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds for their use as part of a Chevy Youth Soccer Fundraiser.
Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation, and the league will keep 100 percent of the proceeds raised.
At the end of the fundraiser, there will be four winners of a Chevy Equinox or Chevy Cruze vehicle, and in each participating market there will be a secondary prize of a home entertainment center valued at $1,000.
Some leagues plan to grant scholarships to families who cannot afford to enroll their children in the league, while others will use the funds to improve fields and equipment.
"We are proud to be able to help the kids in our community by donating equipment and giving them the opportunity to raise much-needed funds for their league," said Bill Donnelly, service director for Dyer Chevrolet.
"We are excited to be part of the effort this year, and anticipate a fun-filled season with Indian River Soccer Association," he said.
