Opportunity to Support PMBS Alumnus

Ryan Gaukler is a former PMBS soccer player who is now playing for Stevenson University. He reached out to me to see if I would be willing to participate in a fundraiser that would help send him to Spain with his college soccer team this August. I thought it would be neat to pass this info. on so other member of our PMBS family could help him out as well. It’s a raffle with a chance to win a trip to see a Manchester United game for two.                         The following is from Ryan:

About the fundraiser:

–      100% of what you pay helps me directly and only me as each team member is responsible for selling their own raffle tickets

–      Raffle tickets are $10 per ticket

o  Payment can be cash or checks, with checks written out to me

o  Tickets are for a chance to win a four-day trip for two and attend the final Manchester United home game at Old Trafford Stadium

  • Two round trip flights to Manchester
  • Two nights accommodation
  • Two tickets to see Manchester United’s final season home game at Old Trafford
  • Drawing will be held on the 1stof March

About my trip to Spain:

The Stevenson University Men’s Soccer team is taking a trip to Spain this August. We will be in Spain August 1st-9th. We will be spending 4 nights in Barcelona and 3 nights in Madrid. We will play 3 friendly matches against Spanish teams as well as have a professional coaching clinic and a few other training sessions. We will also be attending a professional match in Madrid. Besides that, we will have free time in both cities. In Barcelona our hotel will be right on the beach. My teammates and I are all very excited!
