Proceeds of this raffle will benefit Support the Players National Emergency Trust . This fund was established by the NWSL Players Association to support current and former players with their financial needs. Although funds will be available for any type of financial need, there is a focus on access to mental health care for all players. On their website, they explain that this need has been compounded by the revelations of abuse that have surfaced this year.
Thanks to the generosity of many in our community, prizes include:
The player fund was announced on December 15, 2021, with a stated goal of raising enough funds to start distributing money in January, 2022. The money you donate through this raffle will go directly to the new fund, and from there it will go directly to support players. This is the most direct avenue to show our support and have an impact on this work.
Raffle will be open until midnight on 12/31. Drawing will take place on January 1, 2022.
Note: all items can be shipped except the drum. Please only enter the raffle for the drum if you are available to pick up locally in Portland.
