Play. Inspire. Unite.
The top soccer athletes in Ontario were in action in November as the Ontario Soccer Centre played host to the Ontario Player Development League (OPDL) Charity Shield.
In addition to the twelve teams, across six divisions who were competing for provincial glory, money was being raised to donate to local charities.
Every dollar accumulated through the $5 admission rate was donated to Ontario charities, as chosen by the winning teams in each match.
In total, over $7,500 was raised for Ontario charities.
The Canadian Cancer Society, Kids Help Phone, the Canadian Liver Foundation and Ronald McDonald House will all receive a portion of the proceeds, to be presented by the winning teams.
The North Toronto SC U-15 boys and U-17 girls presented their cheques to the Kids Help Phone.
United FA's U-14 Girls presented their proceeds to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Ottawa South United's U-15 Girls also presented their charitable donation to the Canadian Cancer Society.
