Vaughn Italia Shooters helping earthquake victims


Recommended Posts

I found this news story on the Shooters website.

This is an excellent gesture by the club's ownership and I hope soccer fans in the area come out to support the game and support the cause.

My father is originally from a tiny town that is not far from the epicenter of the earthquake and the lives of the people in that small town has been turned upside down as a result of this earthquake. What happened in L'Aquila is far worse. That beautiful, historical city was absolutely demolished.

Shooters to Donate Home Opener Proceeds to Earthquake Victims in L'Aquila Italy

I am sure that you have heard of the tragedy that has occurred in L’Aquila, in the Province of Abruzzi, Italy.

I was born in the small town of Abbateggio, in the Province of Abruzzi. The town of Abbateggio is approximately 100 km away from the town of L’Aquila.

As owner of the Italia Shooters, a soccer team in the City of Vaughan Ontario, I would like to help raise funds for the

earthquake stricken area and donate to a trust relief fund all of the proceeds of our home opener.

The Italia Shooters play against the Montréal Impact Reserve team on Friday May 15, kick-off time is 8:15 pm. Also playing that night

(kick-off 6:30pm) will be the Woodbridge Strikers (the Italia Shooters official reserve team) vs the Brampton Dixie Lions (the official reserve team of the Brampton Lions).

The City of Vaughan has one of the highest populations of Italian-Canadians in Canada. We would like your support in coming out to the game and donate whatever amount you can afford. We will also provide a minute of silence to honour the deceased.

Please help us spread the event - your co-operation would be most appreciated.

Please email me any thoughts, comments, suggestions and support back to info@italishooters.ca

Thank you and hope to see you at our event,

Tony De Thomasis
