Earth Day Celebration

While costume-clad soccer players compete in the Earth Day Soccer Classic: Kick It With Africa tournament, those on the sidelines will enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment. Attendees with a curiosity for the culinary can compete in the Solar Cook-off, and those with a fondness for “fur balls” can watch the World Pup Classic. Other attractions include African dancers and drummers, catering by Tempe Sister City, opportunities to recycle unwanted electronics and shred documents, and booths showcasing the green initiatives of student groups and local businesses. The nearly indestructible One World Futbol, made by a company that uses the “buy one, give one” model and will be donating balls to our partners in Ghana, will also be available for a practice kick.
