A NEEDED DONATION
SportsSignup helps out CJSL, LIJSL, SIYSL
SportsSignup recently announced a $10,000 donation to the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association leagues that were most affected by super-storm Sandy. The Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League, Long Island Junior Soccer League and Staten Island Youth Soccer League each received $3,333.
The donation was made at the Eastern New York holiday party at Lido Restaurant on City Island on Dec. 1.
SportsSignup, based in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. provides applications for online registration, fee payment processing and background checks for ENYYSA.
“We are a national company but New York State is our home and even members of our own families have been affected by Hurricane Sandy,” SportsSignup CEO Anthony Bruno said. “We wanted to give to these organizations to help them get back on their feet.”
Needless to say, the three leagues were grateful for the assistance.
“On behalf of the Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League, I thank you and I’m truly at a loss for words to express my gratitude for your generosity and kindness,” CJSL president Burt Wilkes said. “Be assured that your contribution will be disbursed to those in need so that we can help ease their grief.”
SIYSL president Bill Smith was just as accepting.
“This money will help us with our Christmas care packages to our kids who lost everything,” he said. “Our league will be giving each child a set of shin guards, a ball and $50 gift cards for cleats. We have 62 kids as of now who need help and I know we have more. People like SportsSignup CEO Anthony Bruno and VP Matt Scarchilli are truly friends of soccer for the kids of Staten Island and Eastern New York.”
Added LIJSL president Addie Mattei: “This wonderful donation is a very welcome surprise to the kids of the Long Island Junior Soccer League. The money will be going to the players in our league who need it the most. Thank you, SportsSignup!”
