Jebi Knights and Peace Pandemic raise funds for Guatemalan orphans

The objective is to invite up to 600 kids at the Impact's game in Guatemala

The Jebi Knights, in collaboration with Peace Pandemic and Impact defender Jeb Brovsky, will invite between 150 and 600 Guatemalan orphans to the Impact’s CONCACAF Champions League game against CD Heredia.

As such, a special fundraiser is being organized on game day at Stade Saputo when the Montreal Impact plays Sporting Kansas City on Saturday, July 27, 2013. The event will help raise funds to assist Peace Pandemic in procuring tickets for the game, secure safe and reliable transportation between the orphanage and the stadium, provide children with a nutritional balanced meal ahead of the game, and gifting each child attending the game with a t-shirt and/or soccer ball.
