[Kickin' it for Charity] This Saturday a charity soccer tournament will be held at the University of Utah north soccer field, for the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Sciences (SACNAS). The group is pleased to be hosting the first national SACNAS conference in Salt Lake City this coming October, and are hoping that Saturday's charity soccer tournament will help raise money for people to attend the conference.

SACNAS is an organization that strives to open doors in higher education to historically underrepresented communities such as Latinos and Native Americans, through fundraisers like this one with funds helping to support conferences, scholarships and mentoring programs.

Saturday's soccer battle running from 9 am to 5 pm will be a good one and for the tournament champion the reward won't just be the warm-fuzzy feeling of knowing they supported a worthwhile cause, they will also receive a $200 cash prize. Teams can have up to 8 members though only 6 will be on the field at a time. Registration is only $80 a team and teams can register ahead by phone or on the day of the tournament. The local SACNAS chapter could also use some volunteer refs if you'd like to help out but consider yourself athletically challenged. For more details you can give Ricardo Montenegro (801-808-8829) or Moises Terraza (801-598-4117) a call and they can get your team registered or give you more info. (Eric S. Peterson)
