Kick for the house is not only a great opportunity to watch some Spartan greats partake in a game of soccer, but it also gives folks a chance to receive autographs and interact with their favorite athletes on levels they never have before all while raising important funds for a great community resource.
Admission to Kick for the House is $5. VIP tickets are available for $25 and include access to an after-party with some of the celebrities. All proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan.
All tickets can be bought at the gate. Limited number of VIP tickets will be available and can be purchased from the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) office by calling 571-580-4241.
