The Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers and Fort Worth Vaqueros Community Clinic Series is underway
The Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers Community Clinic Series is off and running with two events held so far around Fort Worth.
Vaqueros players, coach Mark Snell and team staff have trained the past two weeks in the community and then engaged local youth by playing, teaching, eating and signing autographs. The initial community clinic occurred at Manuel Jara Elementary.
Jara Elementary principal Marta Plata used the clinic as the kick off to her Parent University program. The Parent University is a yearlong program that features classes to educate parents on a variety of life skills throughout the school year.
“Thank you to the Fort Worth Vaqueros FC for providing The Best Soccer Clinic to kick-off our 2014-15 Parent University,” Plata said. “Coach Snell and his players are wonderfully approachable. The community welcomed their openness and willingness to pose for pictures and share individual ‘soccer tips’ with their children. It was a great success. We registered 80 parents and their 96 students.”
The second stop on the community clinic tour landed in Lake Worth in conjunction with the Cowtown Soccer Association. Once again the Vaqueros and coach Snell had an impact on the local youth by playing games and then autographing free Raising Cane’s team photo posters.
Raising Cane’s joined the community service by providing free Kids Combo meals to the children.
Cowtown Soccer President Marc Asmode added, “Thanks for coming out to Cowtwon Soccer today. It was super fun and the kiddos and parents had a blast.”
Raising Cane’s marketing manager Courtney Colvin added, “We are so happy to be a part of the Community Clinic Series! We are so proud to be partners with the Vaqueros FC and the Fort Worth Community and we hope to see you all at our next clinic!”
The Vaqueros participation in the program results from the Vaqueros Kicks for Kids charity arm, which is funded through events such as the upcoming Charity FootGolf tournament and the Ghost Tour event plus community minded companies who sponsor the Vaqueros Kicks for Kids Program.
The Clinic Series will continue around the area and schools or organizations interested in hosting a free clinic can contact Josette Vargas at firstname.lastname@example.org
