Annual Auction & Fundraiser

2019 Blackhills FC Annual Kick Off Fundraiser - The Soccer Ball

Come help raise money for our player need based scholarships


The 2019 Blackhills FC fundraiser, The Soccer Ball is Saturday, September 7 at the Hands On Children's Museum in Olympia from 6:30 -10 p.m. Come join us for a night out at the museum!

Blackhills FC (BFC) was established in 1998 and provides playing opportunities to over 600 youth soccer players 4-18 years of age each year. BFC provides a range of competition and professional instruction to suit each individual player’s training needs. Our soccer players represent a diverse segment of the state's population. With the proceeds raised from our auction and fundraiser, BFC awards financial aid to players based on financial need to assist families of players who would not otherwise be able to play soccer. The amount the club has available to award each year depends on a financial aid budget that is determined by fundraising. Last year, the club was able to award close to $30,000 in need based scholarships and special projects. 

This year, the Blackhills FC Auction and Fundraiser will be a fun and casual night out. We invite you to take your family and friends – it’s a family event. And kids of all ages are welcome! We will host a silent auction, live auction, Panowicz Jewelers raffle*, raise the paddle, and a casual meal/drinks.

Cost: $35 for adults and $18 for children (under 18)
