The Oregon Premier League, along with AC Portland, announces our 1st Annual Fill the Cups campaign! A week-long fundraiser during the last week of the competitive year, the OPL is challenging each age group to Fill their Cups to benefit AC Portland.
All year long, the OPL has donated every cent accrued from fines to AC Portland. Now, we want to challenge our players and families to to chip in to support the underserved urban communities in our area; AC Portland provides hundreds of students with structured physical activity, nutrition education and mentorship – at no cost to their families, but needs your help to continue to teach and inspire these students. AC Portland program participants receive programming 4 days per week, which keeps them active, healthy, and engaged in a positive and stable after-school activity.
Of course, we wouldn’t expect donations without a little incentive friendly competition among our age groups!
It’s pretty simple:
We will be out at the Tualatin Hills Parks and Rec Center under the blue tents by Field 1 all weekend this weekend, and all day May 4. Simply stop by, add your contribution to the age group(s) State Cup trophy of your choice (we will also accept your donations during the week at our office).
The three age groups whose cups fill up the highest in donations will be entered to win the following prizes:
Grand Prize (age group donating the most): Portland Timbers game in the adidas Suite - Package for 4
2nd Place: Two Season Tickets for the Portland Thorns FC
3rd Place: Two Season Tickets for The University of Portland Soccer (Men’s or Women’s team)
(We would also consider giving the Grand Prize winner the option of choosing the Thorns tickets instead, with 2nd place getting the Portland Timbers adidas Suite package).
Every $5 donated puts your name in the age group lottery once; for every $20, you get 5 entries. We’ll announce the winning age groups on our Facebook page on Sunday, May 5, followed by the prize winners on Monday, May 6. Finally, once all the money has been counted, the OPL will match, dollar-for-dollar, your donations to AC Portland.
It’s up to YOU to offer Portland area youth the support they need to develop their talents and change our world.
Learn, Serve, Play, and may the best age group win!
