Wow, what an amazing, amazing day we had on Saturday at the very last Whitecaps FC game of the season!
The great event kicked off with Jeb receiving the player award for the Whitecaps Foundation Humanitarian of the Year award!
Congratulations on the award and a great season Jeb!
Behind the scenes, Peace Pandemic had the opportunity to hold a silent auction at the game to raise funds for Jeb's upcoming trip to India in December!
I personally want to thank Anita and Carolina for coming out to help me (you girls rock!) as well as Sandy Hancock and the Whitecaps Foundation for all of her help! Thank you all for your hard work!
Our hot ticket item of the day (among other great items including game worn jerseys!) was a Whitecaps FC soccer ball signed by everyone on the team, and, upon request from our highest bidder, we were lucky enough to have the great Bob Lenarduzzi sign the ball as well!
Whose signature is that??!
So many wonderful people stopped by the table to chat, make donations, and bid on the wonderful items we had for auction!
We thank every single one of you for your contributions, support and interest!
This blog will be frequently updated so you can all follow Jeb and his trip to India!
We will have a table set up in Section 209 and we will be holding a silent auction as well as accepting cash/cheque donations for Jeb's upcoming Peace Pandemic trip to India in December.

Here's a look at Jeb with the kids from the Athletic India Football Club in Abbotsford, B.C.
The AIFC strives to provide essential soccer skills to youth and adults of the Indo-Canadian community while promoting health, fitness, and national heritage.
Jeb had the opportunity to spend time with the kids in the community - he gave them tips and pointers on their game and then took the chance to speak to them about Peace Pandemic.
The AIFC set up a club-wide donation of soccer equipment to contribute to other children in New Delhi; Jeb spoke to the club about leadership and peace, along with the important and significant role they are playing to help children on the other side of the world!
Jeb and Peace Pandemic want to extend a huge THANK YOU to Ajit Sekhon and the Athletic India Football Club!
