This past Saturday (11/3) The Philadelphia Union brought their Mobile Marketing Tour to the Andrew L Hicks Foundation, Soccer for Success Jamboree. The Jamboree was specifically designed to celebrate the children who had successfully participated in the after-school Soccer for Success Program. It was nothing short of a fantastic time! This fun filled event provided an immense variety of entertainment for children of all ages. Activities ranged from face painting to carnival games, all the way to a sporting complex! The Jamboree simply had it all. From 10:00am to 2:00pm there was a steady flow of young smiling faces filtering in and out of the Schwartz Athletic Center at the Widener University Field House. Through all these different activities, what really brought this eclectic event together was the Group Tile Project. Throughout the day children were asked to paint their own tiles to later be mounted together as one. At the end of it all a beautiful, eccentric collage was created. It was truly a pleasure to be a part of. We can only eagerly await what next year’s festivity will hold.
