It was supposed to be a a one day soccer event for the orphans but Susie Irby, wife of Surge Founder Dave Irby saw so many needs that day in Tecate, Mexico that a week later she hopped into her car, strapped Nathan in his infant car seat, loaded up the car with groceries and headed back to Mexico; thus beginning what has amounted to a 24 year (and counting) endearing partnership with the Rancho San Juan Bosco Orphanage.
This past Saturday sixteen soccer players (and a few wives) headed across the California-Mexico border to play in the annual over-55 Orphanage Charity Soccer Match. Frank and Jorge flew in from Portland, Oregon and Gary from Dallas, Texas.
The Surge team won for the first time in eight years but more important was the $3,200 raised for the orphanage to help supply them with meat to eat on Sundays.
More events are planned including a building project. If you would like to participate contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
