Dreams do come true! Terry Stanton’s dream was to establish a scholarship program which would provide need-based financial assistance to soccer players at the Midland Soccer Club. However, he never had the chance to see that dream come true. Terry lost his long battle with kidney failure in June 2007.
Terry always believed it was the Midland Soccer Club’s obligation to provide an outlet to Midland’s youth—and financial status should not dictate who could and who could not play. The Terry Stanton Memorial
Scholarship Program, run through the Midland Soccer Club, was established in May of 2008.
Due to this fund, over the past 4 years we have been able to award 253 scholarships in the amount of $18,587.00. Each year we have been able to award more and more scholarships to deserving youths. Those 253 players would not have been able to play without support of the Golf Outing and donations to the Terry Stanton Memorial Scholarship Fund.
It is with this need in mind that we proudly invite you to be a part of the 5th Annual Terry Stanton Memorial Golf Outing. It will be held on Sunday, July 15, 2012. All funds raised will be used to provide scholarships to underprivileged youth soccer players at the Midland Soccer Club. It cannot be done without your help and support. Golfing in the outing as a foursome, sponsoring a hole on the course, making a monetary contribution or donating a prize representing your organization are just some of the ways to get involved in this event. We welcome and appreciate any support you are able to offer.
On behalf of Terry, his family, and the Midland soccer Club, we thank you in advance for your support. Dreams do come true — Terry dreamt it and we are making it a reality!
As Terry always signed—Yours in soccer,
