It was a gift by kids for kids with the city of St. Peters playing an integral role.
Kids 4 Kids officials and St. Peters Mayor Len Pagano on Aug. 12 presented a $10,000 check to Friends of Kids with Cancer, an organization that works with children undergoing cancer treatments. The funds were raised at the Kids 4 Kids soccer tournament held Aug. 1-2 at the city’s Woodland Sports Park.
The recent tournament marked the seventh year the city and Kids for Kids had partnered to assist kids in need. The format of the tourney is 3 vs. 3 and with 150 teams participating it is one of the largest 3v3 soccer tournaments in the Midwest.
Players from the St. Louis Ambush and Chicago Storm were on location playing games and autographing items. Also participating at this year’s charity event were the Fire and Ice Woman’s Semi Professional Soccer Team, Unsung Heroes and the St. Charles Community College Girls Soccer Team.
