Heinemann Soccer Raffle Proceeds to:
Kirk Urso Memorial Fund
NEWS – The proceeds of the HS STL 2018 raffle will be donated to the Kirk Urso Memorial Fund. The Kirk Urso Memorial Fund serves to honor the memory of Columbus Crew midfielder Kirk Urso, who passed away suddenly at the age of 22 due to a congenital heart condition. Kirk Urso was in his rookie season in August of 2012 with the Columbus Crew and was a friend and former teammate of Tom Heinemann. The raffle will be held following the awards ceremony on the last day of HS STL each week. During the raffle, Rosalita’s Cantina is providing delicious food for all parents and families to come and enjoy free of charge! Please join us and bring the family for our end of the week raffle and awards ceremony.
"We are honored with the opportunity to contribute to the Kirk Urso Memorial Fund. We align ourselves with causes that match our mission in honoring God through soccer and this fund definitely matches up. Kirk always played with the type of passion and heart that we push our players to play with. He was a special teammate and our hope is that this fund continues pressing on to find solutions for congenital heart conditions."
-Tom Heinemann, Owner of Heinemann Soccer
