Marlboro and Manalapan Soccer Clubs are joining forces again, to compete in the second annual Coaches Classic for Charity.
The May 18 event will benefit The Samaritan Center of Englishtown and The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
“Last year, Mike Hammer and Jeff Rosen came up with this great idea to have the coaches and parents from our respective clubs get together for one night to play a couple of games of soccer for two great charities and share a night of fun and laughter," Murray Karp, President of the Marlboro Soccer Association said.
"It far exceeded our expectations. We not only raised money for charity, we not only fostered some great relationships between our clubs, but most importantly we taught our kids such a fantastic lesson on the importance of giving back to the community. We are all really looking forward to this year’s event and I truly hope that we continue this event for a long time.”
Coaches from both leagues will take the field at the .
Ted Giovanniello, President of the Manalapan Soccer Club, said, “Manalapan Soccer Club is very excited to Host the 2nd Annual Coaches Classic. Last year’s event turned out to be a great time. The weather wasn’t the best but, it was a fun time for all the participants as well as all the players that came out to watch their parents and coaches play in a game they all love so much. We look forward to partnering up with Marlboro Soccer Club for many years to come and to be able to raise a lot of money for both our charities."
