We're raising money for the HPHS Soccer Costa Rica 2018 fundraiser led by Blake Novotny.


45% of $10,000 total goal




This fundraiser concluded on Saturday, February 10, 2018


HPHS Soccer is a diverse and inclusive soccer program that has a history of success, international travel, and inclusiveness. In order for all participants to be able to take this amazing soccer & cultural trip to Costa Rica we need to raise funds to support them. Please give a little in order to make this possible!
