Inaugural Winter Gala


We would like to thank all those that participated in making the first annual Soccer Winter Gala a resounding success. Over 230 people from SYA and other clubs joined us at the International Country Club in making this a fun evening to remember.


Jill Ellis the former WNT coach showed us two action packed videos and then spoke to the group about the journey, commitment and belief it took to win two world cups. Jill then presented our graduating seniors their awards for dedication and loyalty to SYA Soccer.


Those awards were followed by our first two inductions in the Soccer Hall of Fame. Gonzalo Abrigo for coaching and Bryan Hunt for Meritorious service. Their Bios will be found on the Hall of Fame webpage soon. 


Dinner was then served and everyone received a dessert from Nothing Bundt Cakes one of the event sponsors. They were a huge hit, most going for seconds!!


Raffle tickets were drawn throughout the evening. Jill signed four soccer balls, IHop restaurants and the Wilheim Restaurant Group donated gift cards and Nothing bundt cakes raffled off two huge goodie baskets. A big thank you to our sponsors and all those that donated items to the silent auction.


Keep an eye open on the website for information next year’s Gala event.


Thanks to our Sponsors
