Mastermind Unit presented its annual Soccer for a Cause benefiting the Michael Magro Foundation after a year off due to Covid.
Our tournament was held on Saturday, August 7, 2021, at Cpl. Kevin T. Kolm Memorial Park in Hicksville. The sun was shining as all our dedicated volunteers started to arrive to check in the teams.
Excitement was high and the teams this year were very enthusiastic and happy to be back playing in this annual tournament. This year we had 8 teams and some amazing donations from far and wide.
