The 2013 America SCORES Boston Celebration is being held Thursday at the Boston Center for the Arts starting at 6 p.m.
According to its website, SCORES's mission is to “inspire Boston’s youth to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and to have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.” These ideals are promoted through various soccer-based activities and programs.
Thursday’s evening in the South End is a celebration of everything SCORES has done for Boston’s at-risk youth. The night will feature performances from SCORES poet-athletes, soccer activities on a turf field, and special guest Jay Heaps, coach of the New England Revolution.
The food served will be inspired dishes from various celebrated soccer countries around the world. This is a 21-plus event.
