On January 17th, 2009 The Century Council helped sponsor the second annual Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra Celebrity Soccer Challenge. During the game at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA we handed out water bottles which were a big hit! Here is Mia Hamm signing one!
On tap for the soccer match were numerous actors, recording artists, and athletes who support the Mia Hamm Foundation which raises funds and awareness for families needing marrow or cord blood transplants.
A few of the celebrities included:
Angus Jones, 2 And A Half Men
Ryan Sheckler, Skateboarder/Life of Ryan
Brandy Chastain, Former U.S. Women's National Soccer Player
Donald Faison, Scrubs
Benji Madden, Good Charlotte
And many others! What a beautiful day and what a fantastic cause!
