Sixty boys from the 12 & under and 14 & under divisions in the Chicago District participated in a fundraiser for the victims of Katrina. The three-hour event, featuring nationally, sectionally and locally ranked players, was organized in less than a week and raised over $6,000 for the American Red Cross Katrina Relief Fund. Three coaches held free clinics and drills, local grocery and pizza places donated food and water, and the CDTA Chicago District provided dozens of balls.
