valpo-pop-warner-disneyOur Valpo Pop Warner MM2 football team received some very exciting news. Our team was picked to represent the entire MidAmerica region (12 states) in a Mitey Mite (9 yrs old) Exhibition game on December 1st at the ESPN complex at Walt Disney World. Our team is one of 2 that will represent the MidAmerica Region and part of a total of 16 teams that have been picked from across the country. We will play a series of 3 games as an Exhibition, as part of the Opening Ceremonies for the Pop Warner Super Bowl that takes place December 1st through the 10th. The games will be broadcast on ESPN3.

We as a team are very proud and humbled at being chosen to represent such a great region. Our team will work very hard to represent Valpo Pop Warner, the Valparaiso community, and the MidAmerica region to the best of our ability.

One of the tasks we are undertaking is to raise all our funds to cover the cost of our team’s travel and expenses. We are asking for donations to help offset this once in a lifetime opportunity. Valpo Pop Warner is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization, so any donations at any amount would be tax deductible. Checks made out to Valpo Pop Warner will be eligible for tax deductions to the fullest extent of the law.

We are also selling $5 raffle tickets for a chance to ride in a WWII B-24 or B-17 airplane. The value of each ride is $425.00.

Sunday, Oct. 28th we are having a Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser from 5 – 8 PM at the Elks 500 Club. Tickets are $10 per person. We will have food, drinks, desserts, music and lots of raffle prizes.
