On Thursday night, the mood was a cautious optimism toward the next day’s game. The United States men’s national team was in a “must-win” situation versus Panama in Orlando, Florida.
We all know what happened next, of course, Bruce Arena’s boys came out swinging, led by teen phenom Christian Pulisic, and rolled over the Panamanians.
Between Arena’s surprise visit and Jimmy Conrad’s shenanigans something else crucial happened at the American Outlaws’ Night Before Party. For months now we’ve sold a special military AO scarf, collecting the proceeds and holding them to present to our charitable partner, Operation Homefront.
This is our second run of these 100%-donated scarves. Back in April 2015 we gave a check to OH in San Antonio as well. Additionally, later in October 2015, chapters and members we’re able to raise over $30,000 to send 500 service members, veterans, and family members to the CONCACAF Cup in Pasadena, California.
We support the red, white, and blue in soccer and beyond.
This time, the generosity of our #AOFamily shown even brighter. We presented the organization that assists military veterans and their families with a $10,000 check to support their efforts.
Check out the video below:
Again, a massive thank you to all those that purchased a scarf and lent their support to our Operation Homefront campaign. Stay tuned for the next one!
